I have the same problem I had in previous updates.

The update failed to installed, but I can see it installed in Control Panel (see attachment).

I used to uninstall it from the Control Panel and install it again from the Update and Security Center, with succeed. But the procedure takes... a century. Is there any other suggestion? And what is true finally? Is it installed or not?
Nothing...

Finally it's shown as installed in both, the Update and Security Center and the Control Panel.

I uninstalled it and installed it again. It took the whole night to get uninstalled. Before, I ran the Windows troubleshooter (see attachment 3) and DISM command.

Nothing...

Let's hope the Troubleshooter and DISM solved the problem.  Guess we'll find out after the December 11 security updates are released.

Microsoft quality improvement update released for Windows 10 version 1809December 5, 2018—KB4469342 (OS Build 17763.168).  The issue referenced earlier regarding the "seek bar" in media player apparently still exists.

Also released for all versions was the out-of-band Adobe Flash Player update.
