Since you started installing MiKTeX, a possible practical solution for
the moment is the following:
-- Install again.
-- Don't update.
-- Load the package manager and download the packages of interest.
The problems you report has its origin in MiKTeX unistalling core
components and installing in a second update, the remaining
components. Sometimes something does not get well specified and we
encounter this problems.
In any future update I will procede, having backed up MiKTeX folders
(about four or five of them).

As far as I can see pdfclose.exe is a wrapper and is (re)created
when initexmf --mklinks is called. But for some reason the access to
pdfclose is not allowed. Can you move/rename/delete pdfclose.exe?
And if you try after the rename can you run on a command line (you
probably need admin rights)
