    Is this also the case when you download the update directly from Microsoft?

    OK, then: sorry for your troubles. It's time to start moving the "heavy artillery" forward. That means tackling this TenForums tutorial: Reset Windows Update in Windows 10.

    That's even heavier artillery than what I recommended. Very glad it worked out for you, though. All's well that ends well, right?
    Thanks for sharing your solution with the forums.
    Best wishes,
