    Metered connection works at my end. The following update has not been downloaded.

    Yeah metered keeps *some* updates at bay. Not all though.

    Cumulative Updates, Features Updates and Defender definitions are stopped from automatically downloading over a metered connection. Flash updates and Defender Antimalware Platform updates are not.

    Observation has shown that those updates deemed too urgent to wait for an unmetered connection include the Flash updates, but do not include the cumulative updates, as demonstrated in this screenshot. Note that the CU is awaiting you clicking Download, while the Flash update has already downloaded.

    Subsequently I've only seen one other type of update download over a metered connection, updates for the Defender Antimalware Platform. That's an update for the Defender engine and UI itself, definitions updates do not download automatically on a metered connection.
