Hah. Classic. Switch to something you know less about and likely still run
Microsoft products either on top of OS X itself or within a virtual machine
of some sort (or dual boot) so you can still work with the applications you
are familar with.
I love Macintosh - but they are far from trouble-free and if you give up on
something this simplistic and insignificant - you'll not make it much
farther on the macintosh either. ;-)
How do you know Microsoft does not know what to do in this case? Did you
open a ticket and get a response? Would you share that response here?
BTW - why did you respond twice to this conversation, once saying nothing?
Also - you know this is 9.5 months old at tthis point, right?
You might try cleaning up your machine and resetting your update system...
Download, install, run, update and perform a full scan (separately) with the
following two applications (freeware versions are the ones to use for this):
(Reboot if asked.)
(Reboot if asked.)
After performing a full scan with one and then the other and removing
whatever they both find completely, you may uninstall these products,
if you wish.
Download and run the MSRT manually:
Reboot (Whether or not you are asked.)
Then follow the instructions here:

Try to update again.
