    which one i have 1703 & none there i see for 1607 & below
    Hide/block the same update as shown in the picture below, but for version 1709 (not 1607). I do not have version 1703 installed in virtual machine but I have 1511, that is why older update is offered to me.

    Navigate to Settings --> Update & security --> Advanced Options.
    You can defer Windows feature updates up to 365 days this means you can stop fall creators update installation.

    NB: That option is only available for Pro, in Home the only available method is to use wushowhide.diagcab, as demonstrated by muchomurka earlier...

    You're welcome. Home has none of the controls for delaying/pausing updates, nor does it have gpedit. There are other features missing or disabled in Home, including the ability to join a Domain or run a VM.

    However, that's beside the point as it seems the OP does have Pro...

    ...but it seems they've clicked 'pause updates' instead of deferring features updates for up to 365 days as you suggested.

    @DrSysop, if you have paused updates that stops all updates for up to 7 days (or 35 in 1709). You don't want to do that, you just want to stop 'features updates' which is what 1709 is.

    The two options that can do that are either to select Current Branch for Business, which will defer the 1709 update until the next version of Windows 10 is released (1803 is expected next April). Or set a number of days for 'features updates' to be deferred (max. 365).

    Either option will allow you to continue receiving all other updates except the 'Features update to Windows 10, version 1709' (once you have unpaused updates, that is).
