    You may want to reconsider using that program. Everything it does in terms of stopping "spying" can easily be done manually.
    That assumes the user knows how to do them manually. It's just makes things convenient and may help avoid missing items.

    Is there a downside to using it?

    Yes, some settings can lead to 'Some settings are managed by your organisation' in Settings.

    On the other hand, its Undo can help fix that.

    Found the solution to my original question about the anniversary update failing with "something went wrong". There apparently is some kind of conflict between the update and Wi-Fi connection.

    The solution by unicore

    worked for me and the update proceeded.

    The solution was to disconnect wifi (go into aeroplane mode) as soon as the update starts verifying the download. Credit Unicore.

    Hope this helps someone else.
