Now you will see all versions of this rollup, select the one you need and download it somewhere you can find it later.
Also use the Windows Update Catalog page to download and install this update first, 3020369, it is a pre-requisite for the rollup, then install 3125574, also be sure to be disconnected from the internet when applying these updates.After install of SUR package reboot, connect to internet and do a manual Windows Update, it should work much faster now.
