Compute stick driver install failing


I'm trying to install the driver update for wifi, WIFI_WIN10_32_21.120.2.exe on an STK1AW32SC, but I'm getting an error and some logs being pointed at. see below for logs

My hunch is some permissions issue, but I'm kindof at a loss for how to fix. If I do a full factory reset, I can install the driver without issue, but I need a way to fix this issue without the factory reset. Does anyone have an idea where to look to get this to run? It's not even clear from the log what file it's failing to find.

Thanks in advance for any advice.
