On a couple of the attempts I kept a backup copy of the following log files:
I searched through the logs looking for "error" or "fail" and googled for information.
There was the recommendation to delete the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder.
And the recommendation to attempt the install from SafeMode.
I can only get into SafeMode by using sysinfo and setting the option to boot in safe mode.
Any other method does not work without a keyboard and I do not have an OTG cable to test with a USB keyboard.
Other recommendations were the same as those outlined on this page:
Fix Windows Update Errors
1. On which Windows version did you get the error?
OS Build 16299.334
2. Note: If you are using Windows 8, you need to upgrade to Windows 8.1

It reported that the Windows Update Database was corrupt (not fixed).

6. Fix Windows file corruption

sfc /scannowSuccessfully completed without error.
7. Perform in place upgrade
Downloaded the Media Creation Tool and performed an in place upgrade which also failed.
Error 0x800706BA - 0x20003
8. Perform a clean install
I have not tried this option. I would have to attempt it from the hard drive
because there is no CDROM drive and I'm not sure if the micro usb port suports OTG
and even if it did I do not have the necessary tools to test.
I'm at a complete loss as to what to try next. Any ideas? Anyone?
As far as I can tell all the drivers are up to date
and there are no yellow exclamation points in DeviceManager.
I hope I covered everything pertinent.
For now I have the update hidden using wushowhide.diagcab.
