    Gentlemen;

    I'm still here. We had to do our afternoon dog walk with our pups. When they bark, we must respond.

    Anyway, I followed Caledon Ken's suggestion in post #4 above. Upon doing a Restart, my machine goes into an endless green screen Please Wait loop. The only way out is to hold power button down to power off and then rebooting. I never got to Troubleshoot > Advance Options > Uninstall Updates.

    As for OldNavyGuy's post #5 above, I cannot open a command prompt. I can click on its icon, but nothing happens. Oh well.

    I cannot go back to a pre 2004 level because I'm past the 10 day limit.

    I was already at level 2004 for two weeks when I had this update failure issue. Also, I cannot see what updates are installed. But, 2004 has run flawlessly since it was installed. My evening updates that are normally installed always revolve around Windows Security changes.

    When the call of nature has your pups eyeballing you, that is priority #1.

    Odd that a security definition file update would cause such havoc. I don't recall hearing of that happening before. I know recently, last couple of days, there was also a Security Platform update. If anything, that would be more likely to fail. Hard to know cause you can't see your history.

    If you're still in the same condition now, you might want to consider a non-destructive In-Place Repair.

    You can get to this option by-
    Press the Power button on your computer to start your computer. When you see the Windows logo during booting, immediately press the Power button again to shut down the computer. Repeat the power-on and power-off operation 3 times. In the third restart-you'll see below screen with the Advance Options. Click Uninstall Updates and you'll then see options to Uninstall last update or Feature update. Choose and let it run.

    I powered on my machine, waited a few minutes, and shut it down. I repeated this two more times. Upon the third boot, I went back to "Check for Updates". This time a new security update downloaded and installed. I then shut my machine down and re-booted. Everything now magically appears to work. iTunes starts normally and things appear normal. I have no earthly clue what happened or why everything now appears to work. I'm calling it quits for the day and going to have a double Gin and Tonic. Tomorrow will be a new day and I'll investigate my problem(s) in detail then.

    I've said this for 48 years and it still rings true today; "I hate computers!".

    Now, do a backup. Before you try to find out why it's working, do a backup. Before changing anything, do a backup.

    Well, you're going to love this stuff. Now my SD card reader has disappeared and my machine keeps jumping into and out of Airplane Mode. I checked my hardware settings and the SD facility is enabled. I'm at the current BIOS and Chipset firmware levels. I checked the SD card I have inserted on another machine and it is recognized and works just fine. I'm not getting any hardware or software error messages. I have never, ever had any issues with this machine prior to the 6/68/2020 software updates.

    I would still suggest you make an Image and test the rescue (boot) media immediately. By testing rescue media I mean boot from it and prove you can navigate to Image.

    Then I would do as f14tomcat suggested and run a repair install.

    If issues continue then you could attempt the update removal.

    V2004 is turning out to be a bit of mess, some say there are new blocks in place to prevent installation, others have fallen back to 1909. Myself, I never install Feature updates for the first 60 days on my production machines. This is not the first "Feature" update to have issues and won't be the last.

    Obviously this is your machine and you call the shots. Imaging will give you new alternatives.

    Gentlemen;

    I was about to take Caledon Ken's advice from post #19 above, but just then I had a revelation. I cannot be the only person to have has encountered this situation. So I decided to consult the wisdom of ewe-toob. Sure enough, others have seen this problem too. I decided to follow the simplest solution presented. I had nothing to loose at this point. Here is what I did:

    Go to Device Manager.
    Find the SD Host Adapters entry.
    Click on that entry to view the actual hardware adapter(s) of which I have only one.
    Right click on the adapter.
    Click on Properties.
    Click on Driver.
    Click on Disable Device.
    Wait a minute or so.
    Finally click on Enable Device.

    Huzzah! It is now working as before. Once again I'm back. Now I need to permanently disable Airplane Mode. I guess Version update 2004 somehow revoked my prior disablement of it.
