    My real firewall is on my router. AV and PC firewall are the ones that came with the stock Win10 Pro 64 install (defender). No third party stuff, found its more trouble than its worth. I have gone so far as to DMZ my machine (with filtering alerts) and throw it directly on an addressable internet address for this for the few minutes it takes. Doesnt seem to make a difference.

    OK reran the script you posted, now WU is "Checking for updates" after the reboot -- and its downloading:

    • Upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, version 1511, 10586.
    We'll see. It should only be a few, I'm on a non-shared 100/100 mbit fiber connection. And my main drive is a 500GB SSD, so thruput is pretty maxxed

    Ok I had to ask, just to make sure.....your router and windows firewall and defender will not affect Windows update.

    By the way, the script you linked to *did* seem to do something the other one didn't appear to do, based on the fact that I got a "Updates installed" message after rebooting from the linked one from you and not the other one. Download is done, back after it does its thing. Cross your fingers
