Cluster Automatic Updates hangs on installation - "Adding CAU clustered role with self-updating enabled"

When installing Cluster Automatic Updates on Windows Server 2012 or above you may notice the setup hangs on installation - "Adding CAU clustered role with self-updating enabled" is displayed in the user interface.

More Information
Checking the system event log may show the following error

Resolution
Cancel the installation, create a computer account in Active Directory using Active Directory Users and Computers and then restart the wizard.

Select the prestaged computer option and enter the name of the computer account you created manually.
