Windows 8 updates KB2836988 , KB2845533 , & KB2855336 all fail to install with error: 0x8007054F

I've successfully installed ALL other updates.  Just these three remain.  I've tried installing all at once, and each individually.  I've tried manually downloading the updates from Microsoft and manually installing them as administrator.  All three fail the same way...

The update installs...
The computer needs to be rebooted...
During boot up the computer tries to finish things, which fails, the update is reverted and uninstalled automatically...
The computer is rebooted again automatically...
Once logged back in, the update is still listed as available/needed...
In the Windows 8 System logs there is this entry (every time):

Installation Failure: Windows failed to install the following update with error 0x8007054F: Update for Windows 8 for x64-based Systems (KB2836988).

I've also tried running "sfc/scannow" as administrator, it finds some issues, I reboot, and then try again BUT to no avail.

Any and all help in the matter would be fantastic because I've tried searching for the pairing of the error code WITH any of those three updates and get ZERO returned results (which is kind of staggering to me).

Thanks in advance for any and all help.

EDIT(00): [ Also! I've tried stopping the Windows Update service, and removed the entire %windir%\SoftwareDistribution directory and starting the service back up, just in case there was a bad download/cache.  Still to no avail... ]
