    Thank you ! I'm doing that now. Actually, upgrading to 21H2. Just downloaded the ISO, mounted it, and ran setup. There was no option to skip the updates, so I just disabled the NIC, and the setup skipped them. It's installing right now.

    You’re welcome.

    The In-place Upgrade is the quickest fix in this case.

    Let me know how it went.

    Yes, if I had used Media Creation Tool and followed the procedure, there probably would have been one.
    I just downloaded the ISO, mounted it, and ran setup, and the option wasn't presented. It started checking for updates. That's when I disabled the NIC in control panel, and it skipped them.

    The upgrade to 21H2 just finished. Took a while, almost an hour. Not sure why it has to be that long. The machine is not that old - i5-6600k with 32GB of RAM, though it's booting Windows off an old Kingston SSD Now 96GB SATA II SSD, but still.

    Anyway, the update to 21H2 completed. The Aquantia 10Gbps NIC came back as enabled automatically. Guess I should have pulled the Ethernet cable if I really wanted to stop network use during the upgrade ! Good news, though, the problem is solved. Windows update now runs fine. Time to run an Acronis backup.
