2.65GB may not be enough room for your update..Windows needs a page file (swap file) aswell as actual storage for the update.
If it continually runs out everytime to try the update it maybe because you are running out of hard disk space...

You may really need to free some drive space and try again

2.65GB of storage left really isn't a lot

Go check how much you really have left.

Goto search icon

type;

system information

then goto Components/Storage/Drives

your c drive (local fixed disk) will be at the top and will tell you how much you have (Size) and (Free Space)

Your failed update. is

Do you have the code reference for this? It will be KB and then seven numbers.
