No idea whats wrong. I had this issue before with Windows 7 and just gave up.

 

I tried installing the updates manually but no luck.

 

It just says updates are installed then asks me to restart, after which it tells me failure to configure windows updates, rolling back.

 

This is repeating for a while now, and became so frustrating, as it forces me to restart the machine every 2 days.

 

Did anyone see/fix this before ?

 

Thanks !

Did you try downloading the installer from Adobe - I think there is a stand alone installer that downloads the offline installer

Just a shot in the dark, but if you have secureboot enabled, try disabling it, I had a similar problem and it turned out secureboot was keeping one of the updates from installing which caused all the rest to fail. You can enable secureboot after the updates are installed though.
