Windows won’t install updates (Security Update for Microsoft Office 2013)

windows 8windows update

Today [Patch Tuesday] I installed the new Windows Updates available for Windows 8. I think there were 14 Updates altogether. All except 3 updates were installed. When i try to install the last 3 updates which are security updates for Microsoft Office 2013 64 Bit and Microsoft Office 2007 suites (I don't have Office 2007, only 2013) I get the Error: Code 80242009 Windows Update ran into a problem.

I have tried to install one by one the updates. The Office 2007 suites install successfully but the Office 2013 won't install. When i click on Check for Updates I again see the 2 Office 2007 suites updates, even if they were successfully installed. Can someone help with this ?

Here is a link to the update that won't install: MS13-074 Security update for Access 2013: September 10, 2013

This might help. Request from here the Hotfix, or download it for Office 2013 64 bit from here or for Office 2013 32 Bit from here.

I just installed the Office 2013 hotfix package and the problem with windows update went away. Everything was installed.

The problem around this update was escalated to the proper team and new updates are being released to take care of this issue. You should try checking for updates in your computer now and try installing the updates available (don't forget to unhide the updates). This should help you resolve the issue.
