    I understand how frustrating it can be when this upgrade and download keeps being reattempted.

    Yes you can - if you really want to, and are sure you can revert from this:
    Stop Windows 10 Updates Properly and Completely Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    (I searched the site for you:
    completely disable Windows updates

    Note: Before any attempt to upgrade, please secure your current state by creating a disk image. This makes sure you have a way to recover should things go horribly wrong (and they can). We continually urge users to use disk imaging routinely- that way you can recover from unbootable situations, uncorrectable problems, even disk failure (new disk) without technical help, relatively painlessly.

    E.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + external storage for disk image sets.

    You will need to fix this at some point.
    Basic steps:
    Run chkdsk C: /scan from an admin command prompt
    If ok, Run SFC /SCANNOW from an admin command prompt
    Uninstall any AV and security software.
    Disconnect any unnecessary peripherals.

    Retry manually: Download the iso using the MS update assistant, so you can retry without downloading each time.

    Note that the error number is sometimes related to problems accessing the update servers.
    Thus manually upgrading may succeed- try without accepting updates during the update process (i.e. offline).

    Otherwise: try:

    I too haven't been able to install the "1803" update., I've tried every which way that has been suggested in these forums (& elsewhere) and it fails each time so now I've resorted to using Windows Update Show/Hide from here: Hide or Show Windows Updates in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials but not until after I had done an edit to force WU to ask every time it wants to download something. Tute here: Enable or Disable Windows Update Automatic Updates in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials look at option 6.
    It could be dangerous to cut off ALL updates. Microsoft really needs to take a good look at their updates - people should not have to jump through hoops in order to accommodate them.
    Now I'm faced with a clean installation on all 3 of my 10's.

    If you have Pro you can set updates to Notify - as I have. (Option 1, subsection 6 in that tutorial).

    If you have Home, you have to follow a different procedure to hide 1803, which I can post if needed.

    You can also use Windows Update Minitool (free).

    I see settings in Enterprise are a little different too.

    I turned off updates by setting Wifi connection to "metered"
    On august 30th 2018 I saw under updates that there was an additional update that said it would fix problems with the update process.
    So I took off the "metered" designation and in update selected download updates. It did and installed V1803 OK

    So I just waited until Microsoft could fix the problems with the update and the process itself. Oly took months.

    Still can't install it, even tried making a complete system DVD including 1803, it wont even do a clean install. I think my machine is too ancient to cope with it.
    Sticking with 1703 for now.
