    After pausing as suggested I attempted to update and get this message:

    Updates are available, but they are too big to download over your current connection. We’ll download the updates as soon as you connect to Wi-Fi.

    I am connected to Wi-Fi.

      Do you have it set that the wifi is metered?

        Only when you have suggested metering as a work-around to MS demand to update. At this moment and when this problem first arose two days ago, the “metered connection” slider is off.
        PS: I even tried turning it ON and OFF a couple of times and restarting in the “hope”? that if some piece of “bad info” was lurking, that might flush it out.
        Thank you for your prompt response.

      Did you try to disconnect/reconnect to your network?

      Please try the network and Windows Update troubleshooters they may find and fix a fault somewhere. (Settings>Update & Security>Troubleshoot)

      Open an elevated Administrator PowerShell prompt and type SFC /Scannow to check the integrity of your Windows 10 system.

      If that does not work you may have to try resetting windows update. And also if you hide updates with the wushowhide tool they will need to be hidden again.
