Confirmed that the Software Update Cycle runs and the updates from MS15-122 install prior to MS15-115.
Targeting was re-defined by the vendor following public release.
Additionally, found some updates fail to install with 'Not Applicable' or 'Already Installed' (Error Message: 2359302 or 0) returned as a result and outlined further on TECH233527.
Installation pre-requisites re-redefined by vendor post publication of these recently released Software Bulletins.
This issue was resolved in PMImport v7.0.1443.1 released on 12/10/15.
Note: Any clients that have already ran the Software Update Cycle with the old targeting rule logic may need to have the updates uninstalled and then allow for retarget and reinstall to set the client back in order moving forward. A Task Job can be created to run on the client and execute a script to uninstall these updates as outlined on HOWTO42396 in correlation with the attached uninstall script (Uninstall Script...) for these specific Software Updates.
