    Assuming this may be a repeat of what you initially posted- an update failing- please post a screenshot of your Disk Management:
    Windows key + X, click Disk Management

    Thanks.

    I don't think that that is happening. Where did you get the impression that it was rolling back?
    We will also want to see the upgrade logs, Microsoft has created a great document on troubleshooting Windows 10 upgrade errors that specifies where the log files are located. Please post them here, along with where they were located.
    I might have to look into that more later. Right now, the instructions in that document are confusing me (and I don't want to risk messing up the current update process by attempting to do what's in them). Is there some dedicated directory that I can search for the logs?

    That looks clean - legacy BIOS, plenty of room on C:

    One thing to check- make sure you have, say, at least 700Mb of unallocated space on your system drive. (It looks as if you may have already).

    Easy way - a decent partition manager. (See bottom right)

    You may be able to find out using Disk Management by attempting to extend a partition (but not actually doing it). I'm not so familiar with that.

    Then there are command line options.

    I can't do that right now. I'd have to install a program, and I don't want to risk it with the update downloading.

    I checked, and Disk Management doesn't show an option to extend the partitions. Just an option to shrink them.

    Put it this way. If Windows requires to create a larger recovery partition, and there's no room to do it, the upgrade will fail.

    E.g.
    Free Partition Manager Software - AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard

    Downloading and installing a program whilst a download is in progress is perfectly ok.

    What would you recommend as my immediate course of action, then?

    By the way, I don't know if this information is accurate, but I found this by right-clicking the system drive in Disk Management:

    I have AOMEI downloading. What exactly should I do after installing it (both in order to find out whether I need to expand the unallocated space, and to do so if I indeed do need to)?

    Use it to inspect your partitions, check for unallocated space and as necessary shrink a partition on your system disk to leave say 700Mb unallocated. It's well supported with help.

    NB you probably can't shrink C: on line.

    I can't see how to check for unallocated space in AOMEI.

    I believe that Disk Management has the ability to shrink partitions. Would it be better to use it or AOMEI?

    NB you probably can't shrink C: on line.

    What do you mean?

    EDIT: What are the chances of the 500 MB not being enough? One thing that I forgot to mention is that the previous computer that I had also upgraded to the Anniversary Update, and it had the same partition sizes as far as I can recall.
