Win 7 Updates fail with error 0x80071a90 0x800705b4

(And the error causes everything installed to be rolled backed.)

The fix is at

Manually installing at least one of them worked around the issue for me. Thanks Dave!

Addendum: On another system, (7x64), I narrowed it down to KB2515325. Manually download/install that one, then run Windows Update and install the rest.
