From what I've read, many people have been having issues with the latest Vista patches. You may wish to try AutoPatcher Vista July in the meantime and see if that allows them to install.

I know this is a very old post, but I think this is the problem I'm having. The current links on this page seem out of date. Can I get a current link to a fix for this problem?

I have the original Window's Updater and it has not worked since I bought my laptop.
