Unavailable repair files:

Based on the example this means that we are missing 1 MUM packages under c:\windows\servicing\packages

3. We locate the failed KB Update KB2388210 in this example which will be different for everybody and we download it on our system
4. We rename it from .msu to .cab and we extract it to get our missing files
5. We locate the missing files and we copy them to a new folder. Most of the times at least 1 file can not be found so we have to rename the update.mum and update.cat to the missing file name

6. We select Properties of c:\windows\servicing\Packages and under Security tab we click on Advanced. On Owner tab we click on Edit and change the owner from TrustedInstaller to our account and then OK to return back to Packages Properties
7. Under Security Tab we click on Edit so we can add our account with Full control
8. Now we copy the missing files to c:\windows\servicing\Packages
9. We rerun the update until the log file does not report any more missing files

* Do not forget to assign the Package permissions back to NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller after you finish with the updates.
