This type of faults are due to <Language ID> line is removed from Configuration.xml file.
Check your system file

It seems you are installing a language pack called “Microsoft Office Online Server Language Pack”. Since you are installing updates for your Microsoft Office, it is normal for errors like this to appear and the message is helpful because it teaches you what is wrong about the installation. Like what the error says, the language pack you are installing requires Microsoft Office Online Server.

Microsoft Office Online Server is not part of Microsoft Office suite and needs to be downloaded separately. Downloading this requires a Volume Licensing account. Go to Volume Licensing Service Center and log in to your account. If you don’t have an account and you don’t have access to Volume Licensing Service Center, ask for permissions from someone who does in your organization.

Once you’re logged in, go to Downloads and Keys section. Once you’re there, locate “Office Professional Plus 2016” in your product list and select “Download”. Next, select your download method. Under “Download Method”, selecting “Download Manager” guarantees your download won’t get corrupt. Select your language then click “Continue”.

Configuring download settings

After this, the list of downloads will appear and you will see “Office Online Server”. Click the download button.

Download Office Online Server

The last step to get the download is to get the product key. Click “Key” and you should see the key for “Office Online Server”.

Get the key for Office Online Server

After installing Office Online Server, download and install Universal CRT (KB2999226) if you haven’t installed it yet. After installing this, install Microsoft Office Online Server Language Pack again. See if this works.
