Cannot install 1079 update (KB4048955) - build number, AMD confusion!

I'm having massive problems trying to update KB4048955 (2017-11 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for amd64-based Systems). I've performed SFC and DISM checks, all look fine. I even went so far as to completely reinstall a fresh version of Windows 10 using the latest ISO on a USB - and am still facing the same issue.

For starters, I have an Intel system - not amd - but Google searches suggest that's fine for this update regardless of the name. It begins to download and install before consistently giving me a 0x80073712 error.

Previously, however, I did install the Fall Creators update. When I go into systems settings, my Windows Specifications list "Version: 1709" but the OS Build is listed as "16299.19" - I believe it should be 16299.64 or later. When I check for updates using the Windows Update tool, it keeps showing me this update is available, and it continues to fail no matter what I've tried. Any ideas?

Thanks again to the fine people on this forum!
