Try this.
Disable Auto update
Then go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
select all and delete
Enable auto updates
and see if you can re-download the update(s) in question and see if that fixes it.

It also might be a good idea to just to be on the safe side and figure out which one is causing the problem to download and install just 1 at a time. Slow and a pain in the ass but better than having to do them all over and over again and getting more and more ticked off by it.

Happened to me too a couple of days ago, I just left it and it fixed itself.
