You can't remove the entries in the Update History list.

What if I do a restore back to the checkpoint before the updates were

If you install the Update successfully it will then get rid of that failed install
in the History and overwrite it as Successful

That is the way mine has always been, also. As to whether System Restore
will erase them, I still doubt it, but it might. Worth a try as you can
reverse it if it doesn't work, and is worth it to you.

System and certain user files. System restore creates a new restore point
before doing the restore so you can return to the current state. User
documents are not affected.
