Any other pertinent details you could provide would be fantastic.

Operating System?
Service Pack level of said operating system?
What have you tried?
What antivirus application is now installed/has ever been installed?
What antispyware/antiadware applications are you/have you using/used?

Hello Fredrik,

0x800f0818 CBS_E_IDENTITY_MISMATCH container package points to a package
manifest whose identity doesn't match the identity specified

What Operating System and Service Pack level are you using?, and perhaps
what other antivirus or antimalware software you may have installed, Security
suite and firewall, etc. etc.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555375

Which Windows Update are you referring to?

Re: Update fail error code 800F0818
Hello,

What version of Norton Internet Security do you have ?
Perhaps you can also try to update to the latest version available, Norton Internet Security 2010: you can find that version at: http://www.norton.com/nis10

I hope this can help.

Re: Update fail error code 800F0818
Hello,

perhaps you can try a system file checker ?
Do you still have the Windows Vista media ? (CD or DVD ?) if so, just insert the media and type in a administrator command prompt: "sfc /scannow".
See this article: How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

I hope this can help!
