        Windows 10 2004 has always been a “wait for it” on my two machines. When AskWoody went to MS-DEFCON 3 for July updates, I clicked on resume on both machines (MicroCenter PowerSpec desktop and Surface Pro 4 running Win1909). Didn’t get an offer for Win2004, it just installed on both machines!

        So far I haven’t had any issues that I can tell, but it was a real surprise.

        Anyone else see this behavior?

        We have had multiple reports of this behavior – forced upgrade to v2004.
        Unfortunately, Resuming Updates from Pause will download/install whatever is available (pending) without notice.
        If you have the Home Edition, it seems the only thing that can prevent this behavior is turning ON metered connections BEFORE you Resume Updates, then trying to hide the updates you don’t want with wushowhide. After the updates are hidden and the queue (cache) clears, you can then turn OFF metered connections and download the updates you want.

        Thanks! I am running Windows 10 Professional, is there another way to install updates on this version (other than clicking resume) after pausing when MS-DEFCON recommends installing latest updates?
