On my Server 2016 machine, the cumulative updates won't install. Each month, a new cumulative update arrives, and if you click install it will go through all the steps but upon the restart...it fails and rolls back. Any idea why?

It is hard to say why it failed from what you explained.
However, you may look into Windows Update log files, take a look at:
