    USOClient, WaaSMedic, SIHClient, and remsh have many tasks that force windows updates on. USOClient (and probably the others) downloads windows updates even if the Windows Update Service is off. So I'm amazed that you aren't getting forced updates.
    The last three of the four mentioned have, in the past, tried to access the internet. With Norton's firewall registering these attempts, they have been blocked. After Windows 10 Feature Updates, such blocks may need to be reapplied.

    I understand USOClient is triggered for offline update installation.

    What method are you using?
    Metered connection. See the screenshot at Enable or Disable Windows Update Automatic Updates in Windows 10 - Page 55 - Windows 10 Tutorials
    I set the connection as metered via Regedit. See How to prevent downloading updates? - Windows 10 Forums

    I, too, use Windows 10 Home x64; and disabling Windows Update service suffices in preventing updates.
    This Home Edition user has NEVER disabled the "Windows Update" service, and updates have NEVER been downloaded automatically. A message will pop up automatically when updates have been found. See the two links above.

    I have disabled UsoClient.exe via the commands below, and I have successfully installed all updates.

    Just for FYI, for the above link to work with a non-english language version of windows, instead of translating the user account names, Well-known security identifiers should be used:
    Code:
    takeown /f "%WINDIR%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /a
    icacls "%WINDIR%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /inheritance:r /remove "Administrators" "Authenticated Users" "Users" "System"
    should instead be:
    Code:
    takeown /f "%systemroot%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /a
    icacls "%systemroot%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /inheritance:r /remove *S-1-5-32-544 *S-1-5-11 *S-1-5-32-545 *S-1-5-18
    Also, to restore TrustedInstaller as owner of USOClient.exe:
    Code:
    takeown /f "%systemroot%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /a
    icacls "%systemroot%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /reset
    icacls "%systemroot%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /setowner *S-1-5-80-956008885-3418522649-1831038044-1853292631-2271478464

    The commands in the link already work with my Chinese version of Windows 10.

    That's interesting that it works for the Chinese version. In the French language version you have to use
    Code:
    icacls "%WINDIR%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /inheritance:r /remove "Administrateurs" "Utilisateurs Autentifiés" "Utilisateurs" "Système"
    That's why I use
    Code:
    icacls "%systemroot%\System32\UsoClient.exe" /inheritance:r /remove *S-1-5-32-544 *S-1-5-11 *S-1-5-32-545 *S-1-5-18

    I'm not, but a major contributor of code to this script, rpo, is.

    The following screenshot shows how I have prevented automatic downloading of updates by changing the DWORD value of Default in DefaultMediaCost from 1 to 2, which denotes a metered connection.
