      Sorry for not adding this to my previous post but its not coming up in a search.

      I’m still having a heck of a time with Win 10 updates.  Different versions of 1803 and 1809 have failed, with different error codes.  As per previous advice, I removed media player and still the updates keep failing.  I’ve attached the update attempt history.  Would appreciate any ideas.

      The longer this goes on, the more  disruptive the constant nagging from MS to update seems to get.

      Thanks.  I’ve tried all of those before except for “in-place” upgrade or total re-install.  go through the hassle of re-installing all my software just because MS is forcing a pretty useless upgrade.
