    Thanks Bree. I added the update experience to my previous post. Things went smooth and quick like v1709.
    I see it there now. Much like my experience then, except I upgraded using an ISO made by the MCT.

    If you need it, the microcode update doesn't seem to be being delivered by windows update, but you can get the standalone installer from the Microsoft Update Catalog.

    Direct download links for KB4100347 MSU file from Microsoft Update Catalog...
    KB4100347 Intel microcode updates for Windows 10 v1803

    If you manufacturer has issued a recent bios update, then you don't need the update. That's the preferred method of getting the microcode.

    I was notified yesterday that the 1803 update was, once again, waiting for download and installation. Once again, the installation was rolled back to the previous version of Windows for an unknown error. I have tried 5 times now to install 1803, and each time it rolls back to the previous version. I have read this update is riddled with problems. Has anyone else encountered this difficulty installing the update? At this point, I am tempted to just ignore it! I am tired of wasting my time with it.

    As it will continue to attempt to download and install, you either need to
    - hide the upgrade (so it isn't attempted)
    - disable Windows update altogether (not wise!)
    - investigate and resolve the problem - which could be anything from disk space and/or partition issues, disk corruption (try chkdsk and SFC /SCANNOW) to needing to do an in-place upgrade repair install of your current build to a compatibility problem with a 3rd party program (e.g. security program or something modifying the GUI).

    You may be able to find more from log files, which are widely listed.

    Doing nothing will just lead to repeated large downloads, I suspect.

    As you have Pro, you do have the option to defer upgrades for up to 365 days.

    It is, but it's erratic. Many machines say 'up to date' with no attempt to download KB41000347 yet.

    Some have installed it automatically, needed or not. Damn thing doesn't even check if it's needed.

    Update: I have installed the updates shown on my screenshot successfully. No problems to date ... however, the 1803 update is no longer listed as my system is now up to date apparently. Very strange indeed.
    I don't think that is strange. Everyone else's comments make sense. I'm one who waits for my Windows Updates to happen naturally and haven't had any issues yet on my 2 computers. I am responsible for maintaining 5 computers and only one of them has updated to 1803.

    Thanks for the response folks. Yes, I have Pro with deferred settings, etc. But if you "Check for Updates", the damned thing attempts to install. This old guy is going to let that damned thing sit! I've lost all faith in Microsoft pre-release testing ... it stinks! I am with you MeAndMyComputer!

    Note that you can also set updates to Notify. That means that if an update is detected, you are notified, and you then have a choice of downloading it or not, and hence when to install the update.

    Want more control? Use Windows Update Minitool (free).

    Thanks for the info Dalchina. I have it set in gpedit to notify but not download. It's only when I forget and click on "Check for Updates". Then, all bets are off and here comes the download/installation. I staying with 1709 as it stands now.

    Update: I finally found a way to stop the annoying practice of slamming updates from Microsoft. This is the link:

    Not This Again Re: What Fresh Hell Is This... - Windows 10 Forums

    The current update philosophy of Microsoft is just an utter disaster!

    Glad you found a method that suits you. Whilst I agree the default settings in Windows for upgrades in particular and anything needing a restart are the worst possible, I have Pro set up in such a way I never have unexpected restart events or upgrades, by using the Group Policy editor - i.e. the tools provided.

    I do agree that requiring users to be technically aware and able to use these appropriately is simply inappropriate. I don't believe it should routinely or normally be necessary to disable updates.
