    I just had an idea - from your pics, it looks like the 2018-11 version of KB4023057 was installed on 12/4/2018, and Windows Update wants to install the 2018-12 version now. Call me crazy, but maybe if you let it go ahead and install the newest version, then restart, and uninstall it completely and cleanly, then you could use wushowhide.diagcab to hide it from reinstallation with the next release (assuming MS keeps allowing us to hide unwanted updates... ).

    Apparently nothing has launched sedlauncher.exe since shortly after I started this thread.

    Since Update history shows the patch installed, Programs and Features shows it's not installed, and Windows Update shows it ready to download, I suppose I could install it just so I could uninstall it. But maybe I'll just let things ride for now.

    Update:
    I spoke too soon. SleepDeferralConditionsMet was set again - a day after my previous statement.

    Since I seem to be stuck with something turning on SleepDeferralConditionsMet, the important question is: How do I turn it off? Is there a way to invoke sedlauncher.exe to turn this flag off?

    I thought I had responded to this but I guess not. I (re?)installed KB4023057 on one of my PCs but I still have the situation I mentioned before - it shows in Update History but does not show as an installed update that can be uninstalled.

    You might try CCleaner or another independent uninstaller - they might find a handle to uninstall the demonic KB...

    I had an old CCleaner so I installed a newer release. I know it can uninstall programs but I don't see anything about installing Windows maintenance. Do any of the other similar product do that.

    I think I have found the culprit turning on the SleepDeferralConditionsMet flag. I think Windows Update turns it on when it finds maintenance to install. And it almost always finds maintenance to install because I have a Group Policy set to check for, but no download maintenance. (I stay a bit behind so that others can find the buggy fixes.) Maybe there's a new policy (or a new option in an old policy) that will eliminate setting the SleepDeferralConditionsMet flag.
