      I asked this question some time ago, but I could no longer log in, so I could not acknowledge any replies. Earlier when I tried to update I got a number of error messages (KB articles) ( different at different times) with several remedies each. My ability to understand what was presented prevented me from following any of them. The updates would proceed to about 99%, then say that it couldn’t complete and undo what it had done. Then for several  months there was no W update activity. Now update attempts have resumed, but they still fail (apparently). No messages. Just upon restart there has been no change.

      Have you tried running the .ISO from the desktop, preferably with the network/Wifi etc disconnected? or Creating a Rufus Stick/DVD/CD and booting from it then selecting upgrade?

      Hope that helps a bit.
