Those .net errors.

Most of them have me uninstalling .net. Many folk don't need .net and the updates fail for too many reasons.

At least Windows Update does not rely on .net.

Saw that recently

Try going to the control panel for windows update and disable it. Restart and re-enable automatic updates. I've seen this a few times on several PCs and don't have an answer why this seemed to fix it. I'd already checked and the service was running. Go figure.
