@Steve Bailey Did you install SharePoint updates from Windows updates previously?
As best practices, we suggest you install SharePoint updates via downloading these updates and installing manually instead of Windows updates because deploying SharePoint updates via Windows updates maybe cause some unknown issues.
The following article lists SharePoint 2013 Foundation updates history, you can download updates as your need.

Hi @Steve Bailey ,
Is there any update on this issue? Comment here if you still need any help.
You were correct - I had to install the updates manually, they always failed through Microsoft Update.
I tried 2 ways to download the updates, through each KB article and through the Microsoft Update Catalog. The updates failed when installing through the Update Catalog, so the only way, was to download each KB executable through the specific KB article.
Thanks for your feedback, glad to hear your issue is resolved.
If you have other questions about SharePoint, welcome to raise a thread on this community. :)
