Why are MS' updates so shit ?

I understand that MS cannot possibly ensure that their OS updates will work with all combinations of PC hardware.

BUT, after decades of doing this, why can't they simply, clearly tell the user WHY the update has failed ?

They expect us to wade through 45MB "human readable" log files to find a clue or run a special app to give another clue. And that app crashed on me.

AND why can't they detect when updates have failed and DISABLE the automatic re-download and attempt at installing THE EXACT SAME, FAILED UPDATE, oVER AND OVER AGAIN ?!
