    2019-01 Cumulative Update for W10 V 1803 x64-based KB4480966 FAILING

    This post is a continuation of an old unresolved post (2018-08 Cumulative Update for W10 V 1803 x64-based KB4343909) that "dalchina" had graciously offered me much help on. Regrettably it has not gone away and my computer is still in the update/fail/undo/update/fail/undo mode ad infinitum.

    New question: Would it be of any help or use to do a complete reset of Windows 10? I have read about this procedure but I'm not clear if it will give me a fully-updated Windows 10 (right up to an including the latest updates) or what my computer originally came with (Windows XP) or something in the middle.

    The latest screenshots are in my last post on the old thread "2018-08 Cumulative Update for W10 V 1803 x64-based KB4343909"

    I'm game to try almost anything to break the tedium! Thanks, and HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!

    Win 10 Pro:Myne also failed after it downloaded for some hours(Connected to internet). This was while I had the updates delayed.

    Next day .....After I removed the delaying, it downloaded all the next day again and install reboot and re-download reboot and pass, now at 1803.

    Is it suppose to gubble up your bandwith if updates are delayed, this PC is usually not connected to the internet.-?

    Thanks Chris. This issue has been ongoing since last summer. The computer is connected to the Internet all the time and to save me grief (and ensure it can take as much bandwidth as it wants), I have set the update timings for overnight. That way I can start the morning off with the usual "Sorry we could not install the updates" apology from Microsoft.

    What I am hoping to do is just do a clean install of Windows and see if that will cure the problem. Or perhaps my HP is just not compatible with the upgrades. Purchased in 2013.
