I blocked Win 10 auto update by (1) selecting "Never install driver software from Win Update" in Driver Installation Setting, (2) using the "Show/Hide Update" troubleshooter, and (3) setting my Wi-Fi connection as Metered. Yes, I hate auto updates

So I see only critical updates (not driver updates) listed at Windows Updates waiting to be downloaded. HOWEVER, after reboot the Window Update shows "failed update entries" for those critical updates, and consequently the update history is filled with update failures.

My question is...."If you blocked auto update, do you also see failed update entries?" I just want to know if the problem I described above is a normal Win 10 behavior or if I'm doing something wrong. This is driving me crazy!
