Microsoft Updater says I have a critical update (KB2286198) to install but it fails and gives the message: "WindowsUpdate_80246007" "WindowsUpdate_dt000".

I've tried a couple of things that MS Support suggests but they don't work and don't seem to really apply to this particular error message. Searching for the error code 80246007 hasn't yielded anything yet that works.

Any ideas?

What error message did you receive when you tried to download and install it manually?

After initializing for about 30 seconds, then "installing" for 45 seconds, then sitting with the progress bar all the way to the right for 1min 20sec I got the message:
Some updates were not installed.
The following updates were not installed:
Security Update for Windows (KB2286198).
