    Error Code: 80073712 while installing updates on Windows 8 System.

    Am trying to install the updates through automatic updates on my Windows 8 computer, when I check the status of the installed update I have seen that all the updates are terminated their installation because of the Error Code: 80073712. So tell me why this error occurs and what should be done to fix this error message.
