Hello everyone!! I am hoping that someone may be able to assist me with this windows update challenge that I am facing.
I have a server 2012 r2 installation that will not install updates anymore. I have already tried tried sfc /scannow, DISM tools and deleted the software distribution folder but nothing will get them to install.
They always fail on the reboot and I get a message stating that windows is rolling back the changes.
I have also performed all the steps mentioned to follow before posting, below is a copy of the log from SFCFix. And CBS log folder uploaded here.

Thanks,
Travis

Sorry about the delayed reply, I was out of the office for awhile and have just gotten back. I will get the log and post it ASAP.

Thanks,

Your System Reserved partition may be full and that is causing the failure.

I was not able to free up any space with disc clean up. Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your help!!

You could try something like AOMEI Partition Assistant, but ensure you have good backups prior to doing this as this can result in unbootable system if done incorrectly.

That was it!!! I actually used GPARTED to resize the system reserved partition. As soon as I freed up the space updates started working again, thanks so much for your help!!!!! You are AWESOME!!!
