    I went through all that the day before you did. How you describe it, sounds Identical to what I went thru. I didn't post about it because I thought most everybody here had already done the August update for W7, and didn't see one single post at the forum reporting the hoops that I/we had to go thru to install August updates. In the end, all was fine. Downloading, and manually installing the Service stack was the key.

    Today, from Windows Update, I did not receive KB4516655, the SSU that supersedes KB4490628. However, I did receive the 3 other Sept 10 updates. This SSU is a recommended prereq for this month's patching. It's odd for this to happen and I do not know why windows update got it wrong this time, however I did do a quick online search to see if it was happening to others (but nothing), so maybe it was a server error or glitch that caught me out this time. I cleared all windows updates in the important queue, closed the GUI and windows update sent me KB4516655. It really did want me to have it!

    I got offered KB4516065 Rollup for Windows 7, KB4514602 for .NET Framework, and the KB4474419 SHA-2 code signing support update.
    After installation of those three updates, Windows Update found and offered KB4516655.
    It was odd that prerequisite KB4516655 was only offered after installation of KB4516065, but anyhow, everything installed without any issues.

    - I fear MS doesn't care too much anymore about Windows 7 and releases "buggy" updates/patches.
    - One example is the offline installer for .NET v4.8. I downloaded this update 3 times this year. Each were different in size.
    - I am unable to install KB 4516065 and KB 4516655, even when I have installed KB 4474419.

    Try installing KB4516655 on its own and not with the other patches. The SSU will be rejected (fail) if you try to install it with other patches.

    I feel the same way. (I am still on 8.1).
    I am still offered to install this update from time to time (and it should be already installed at least 10 times till now lol):

    Code:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3038936/august-2015-anti-malware-platform-update-for-windows-defender-in-windo
    I checked and I am not the only one with this issue. Not much of a problem but still wondering why it happens...

    Today finally I received the new servicing stack update:

    Code:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4512938/compatibility-update-for-installing-windows-8-1-rt-and-server-2012-r2

    I'm glad updating Windows on Windows 10 is no longer such a mess, however getting all updates shoved down your throat is the opposite extreme :argh:

    - Downloaded KB 4474419 today (again) from the MS Update Catalogue website and the update is already in its 3rd version. The update had "-v3" in its name. (I still have this update with "-v2" in its name).

    I was invited to install Rollup KB4516065 and KB4474419 of which I sent both off to the hidden bin. Then like magic, KB4516655 appeared. Downloaded and installed same and it went well. Then restored hidden updates KB4516065 and KB4474419 which I installed first then KB4516065 afterwards. I am amazed, but all is well. One month closer to D Day for this old rig.

    Well, it looks as though that makes three of us who have had to shake out the SSU. Is it groundhog day?

    This is not unusual. In V3 they added some boot files that were not in V1 and V2. They must have received complaints that some systems were not booting properly after either (or both) V1 and V2.
