      @Alex5723 and @joep517:

      I believe I have solved the problem:  I have Storage Sense turned on.  After turning it off and rebooting my system, I was able to run disk-clean-up.  So it seems Storage Sense disables Disk-clean-up.  (When I think about it, this makes sense!)

       

      (I have not been able to verify this by trying again, since my system disk is now clean!)

      @Seff :  “Microsft 365  is a subscription service that ensures you always have the most up-to-date modern productivity tools from Microsoft.”

      “Office 2019 is sold as a one-time purchase, which means you pay a single, up-front cost to get Office apps for one computer. One-time purchases are available for both PCs and Macs. However, there are no upgrade options which means if you plan to upgrade to the next major release, you’ll have to buy it at full price.”

      Yes!  The issue has been corrected.  I was able to click on “Updates are available to download” and all went as expected.

      SOLVED!

      @joep517 and @Alex5723 : An interesting follow-up to this issue: I see in this article:

      https://thewincentral.com/microsoft-a-new-tool-to-reclaim-windows-10-reserved-storage-coming-soon/

      “Microsoft may soon introduce a new DISM tool to allow users to reclaim the “reserved storage” on Windows 10. Reserved storage was designed to help Windows 10 feature updates get successfully downloaded and installed without the user having to free up disk space.”

      EDIT:

      Currently, the DISM tool to reclaim reserved storage is only available in Windows 10 Version 2004 but Microsoft plans to bring it to earlier  Windows 10 versions too, though a time-frame hasn’t been shared yet.  See here:  https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/windows-it-pro-blog/managing-reserved-storage-in-windows-10-environments/bc-p/1303979/highlight/true#M1579

      @joep517  The files are identified as “windows update” (about 6GB),  This has been the approximate size of this category shown in my disk clean-up for the last several months.

      I think the explanation is that the space that Windows now reserves exclusively for updates (see #2262658 above) can be read by disk clean-up, but not accessed.  I believe this is now managed only by Storage Sense.  (If you check your OS disk you will see an added partition for this purpose).

      @PKCano.  You are correct.  In fact, VMWare V 12 is, according to VMWare,  incompatible with 1909 (but I see elsewhere in this forum, that there is a way to “trick” Windows into accepting it).  VMWare 15 and VMWare 15 Player are reported to be compatible with the latest Insider builds.  (But, who knows, maybe not ALL builds!!)

      I will try the fix mentioned in my #2110004 above and report back.

      @PKCano:  I must apologise.  The VM I am referring to is running under VMWare Workstation 15 Player.

      I have (just a few moments ago) come across a report that says a VM must be configured with SATA disk and not SCSI in order to run Windows 10 builds beyond 195..   (My VM is configured on SCSI)

      I will recreate a new setup on an SATA disk and see if this solves the problem.  I will report back here.

      Update:  I never did get 19536.1000 to install and boot.

      I am now experiencing exactly the same issue with build 19551 (“Fast Ring”), as per my posts #2839585 and  #2039888 above.

      Even after performing a completely fresh installation within my Virtual Machine, starting with Version 1909 installation ISO via MCT and then switching to Insider, Fast ring.
