    OK, thanks. Was just grasping a straw.

    I found the log and it has done lots, just not reported it in the CMD window.

    If the system tray is present even with the free version, the background service runs.

    In my case it is not in the tray and the service is not running.

    That's odd, I just selected that link on each one of my PC's w/o any issues
    You should have seen a list to go through
    1. Check Manufacturer’s Website to Find Out if Your System is Compatible
    2. Download and Create Backup Reinstall Media for Your Current Version of Windows
    3. Make Sure Your System Has Enough Disk Space
    4. Connect to a UPS, Ensure Battery is Charged and PC is Plugged In
    5. Disable Your Antivirus Utility – In fact, uninstall it…
    6. Disable All Background Software
    7. Disable Peripherals and External USB Devices
    8. Update or Disable Display Adapters
    9. Disconnect from the Internet When Using an ISO
    10. Skip “Get Important Updates”
    11. Switch to a Local User Account
    12. Run these Commands to Resolve Any System Integrity Issues
    Conclusion

    Instead of clicking on the link, type the title of the article
    12 Things You Should Do Before Installing a Windows 10 Feature Update
    and see what link shows up for it.

    I had no problem with the link and I saw that list. My initial problem was with the command...
    rundll32.exe pnpclean.dll,RunDLL_PnpClean /DRIVERS /MAXCLEAN
    ...that I obtained from that link. The command ran and gave no indication of success or otherwise (good old Win 10), but I tracked down the log as I explained.

    In your post #52"From your link I obtained this cmd... rundll32.exe pnpclean.dll,RunDLL_PnpClean /DRIVERS /MAXCLEAN ...but it appeared to do nothing."
    "I found the log and it has done lots, just not reported it in the CMD window."
    --- Can you elaborate on “it has done lots” on how it has been helpful?

    I'm not certain that anything has been helpful as I have not tried the install again. The log showed that that cmd had deleted a number of redundant drivers. I'm sitting on this for the next month before I attempt the update again.

    In Windows Update error codes by component
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...rror-reference
    0x80242016 WU_E_UH_POSTREBOOTUNEXPECTEDSTATE The state of the update after its post-reboot operation has completed is unexpected is in the Update Handler errors category.

    If that error and message shows up again, consider the following.
    --- I know you have the ISO and will accept a clean install if it comes down to that and that’s fine.
    --- But do check out the following as that procedure might be a good process to have available for other error codes you might run into.

    Windows Errors Troubleshooting Directory
    Search results for 0x80242016 - Windows Errors Troubleshooting Directory

    Enter the error code into the Search for your error box.
    You will see the Error name, Error number & Error description further down.
    Click on either the Error name or Error number.

    NOTE: There is a link to Download and install the repair kit. I never select such a link unless I know what it is.
    --- I have a desktop PC I use for experiments and that’s where I check anything I don’t know about.
    --- Naturally I create a system image backup first as well as a system restore point.

    Next you will see
    How to fix the Windows Update Error WU_E_UH_POSTREBOOTUNEXPECTEDSTATE 0x80242016 from ErrorVault.com.
    How to fix WU_E_UH_POSTREBOOTUNEXPECTEDSTATE (0x80242016) - The state of the update after its post-reboot operation has completed is unexpected..
    It appears to me you have already looked into the recommendations mentioned in this article but please check them out.

    I would look into Method 2 - Clear Updates Folder even if you have already tried to “Clear Updates Folder”.

    You might have downloaded the update several times and it's still doing the same thing.

    You can then try clearing the Updates folder by doing the following:
    Click Windows key on your keyboard together with the letter R to open the Run window.
    On this window, type c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download, then click OK.

    This will launch the folder where the downloaded Windows updates are.
    Highlight everything by clicking Ctrl+A on the keyboard, then Delete everything in the folder.
    Sometimes some of the files will be difficult to erase. Just try deletion over again until nothing is left in the folder.
    Run Windows update again to check.

    CAVEAT: See if anyone else has an opinion on it.
    --- If you do not want to do that, at least look into the contents of c:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
    --- Post a screenshot also.

    With all of that said, I mentioned that because you can use that ErrorVault.com to test any error code and see the recommended methods to fix the issue(s) at hand.
    --- If this process doesn’t solve the “0x80242016 WU_E_UH_POSTREBOOTUNEXPECTEDSTATE The state of the update after its post-reboot operation has completed is unexpected” issue, at least you will know.

    Naturally other issues will still need to be investigated such as the effect of “100+ apps, drivers, settings”.

    Bottom line though: don’t rush. And I still believe the clone drive D should be removed.

    I've been thru every recommended check-list for Win 10 Update problems and ticked every item. I then ran the in-place update from the ISO file; mounted the ISO under Win 10 and selected keep Apps & Files. The same result as all those previously; the update got to around 70% this time then restarted and rolled back. I've certainly learned a lot about Win 10 in this exercise, although I don't have the desired result. Failing some new revelation in this next month or so I see the only solution as a clean install from the ISO.
    During my investigation, I found this excellent tool for cleaning up after an Update problem...
    Reset Windows Update in Windows 10

    - - - Updated - - -

    Found some interesting information. In Start... type System Information... select the app... then select Software Environment/Windows Error Reporting. In there I found error messages corresponding to the failure of the install.

    Those same messages can also be found in this path...

    Researching those messages brings up suggestions that it is a s/w conflict and a Clean Boot is recommended.
