    Thanks, that's significant, as it shows general repairs such as an in-place upgrade repair install, sfc /scannow, DISM.... etc etc won't help- this is specific to your user profile.

    What happens if you do a clean boot? (Google if unsure how or see tutorial). (Just to try to confirm no effect of anything running).
    According to that I already am doing a clean boot, I don't have anything running on startup except my printer, classic shell, windows security notification icon, and installshield.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that none of those are going to be messing with my screen or night light.

    I don't know why the hell I'm having this problem, but I've read that it's a problem with win 10 1903 and it should be updated, but I can't seem to update beyond 1903?
    Is there an update I need to delete?

    I'm running 1903 on 2 PCs - no problem with Night light.

    Fix 2 claims to help where you've lost control of Night Light:

    You may have tried this.

    Here's a Powershell script you could perhaps make use of to try to control it if desperate.

    If you can disable Night Light using this you could schedule this as a workaround.

    This gives some info about what changes in the registry in answering the question:
    cmd.exe - Run a batch file when windows activates/deactivates "Night Light" - Super User

    but I can't seem to update beyond 1903
    a. there's not much useful added in 1909 and 2004
    b. 1909 broke/altered Windows search in file explorer and took MS some months to sort of fix it
    c. 2004 is not now being offered proactively as I understand it as there have been a lot of problems.

    As to why you can't update, that could be anything from compatibility to one of a number of reasons depending on the error messages. But diagnosing upgrade failures is more a matter of a lot of luck... and few are that lucky.
