By definition, cumulative updates shouldnā€™t be necessary to install. With Microsoft however, itā€™s a little difficult, though possible.

Steps to installĀ KB3206632 on your PC

Microsoft providesĀ an easy way to manually download the updates for your PC using the Update catalog.Ā You can useĀ catalog.update.microsoft.com to search and download each update for your PC manually. Here are the step by step instructions.

Since the cumulative update isnā€™t installing automatically in Windows Updates, it could be possible that the Downloaded installations and Software Distribution folders may have some junk. These two are used to store temporary update data and other files while Windows installs updates.

With time, they can get filled with old and outdatedĀ data which can obstruct the Update process. Clearing them can help you to mitigateĀ KB3206632 failing to install problem. IĀ have written a guide in the past on how to clean the Clean up SoftwareDistribution and Downloaded Installations folders. Use it and then proceed with manually installing the updates.
