Solving Error 0x80092004 for Security Update KB4516655

Granting my Windows installations one last round of updates, I noticed that Windows Update would not let me install KB4516655.

Hopping around through the internets forums to figure out how to solve the situation, I found that the security update needed another update which is probably not on the list of dependencies of the update package:

KB4474419 had already been installed

KB4490628 this one was missing (and once linked correctly, and once linked to a different KB 4512506 here, which I did not immediately recognize)

KB4512506 (Monthly Rollup August 2019)

After applying those updates manually, KB4516655 could be installed, allowing the succeding rollups 2019-09 and 2019-12.

Of course, the WindowsUpdate.log file does not indicate, WHY things go wrong:

And the Windows Update “Help” is just as unhelpful.
