I've been getting update failures on a system at work too.
Not sure why.
My computer at work has no problem and I was contemplating if maybe having the full .Net 4 install (instead of just the .Net 4 client install) has something to do with it.

If you find anything out let me know and I'll do the same.

Try installing each update one at a time through the windows update interface, don't let them all automatically install when the machine is shutdown.

Wow, I have been having this issue as well. For the past half month, my Win7 PC has failed the update process. If I recall correctly, there were around 20 updates too.
