Reading about the last update and that some people were having trouble with it. Further read that MS was withdrawing it, then I noticed that I could no longer check for updates! The "check now" icon was no longer there. There was an optional update sitting there that was not downloading. I first thought that MS had stopped updates, WRONG, my other puters were updating fine. So poked around some more with the update screen and finally got a message that "windows updates were suspended while battery saver was ON" (this was obviously on my laptop) Turned it off, now updating normal! DUH!
