      I updated several Win8.1 a while back with the Rollup (which contains the Security-only patch) and have had no problems. One is my main driver too.

      I’ve seen that behavior several times. I always wait till everything is installed before restarting.

      If you want to upgrade to 2004, you will need the ISO now.
      Click on my Avatar and then on the “Replies Created” link. I have given instructions multiple times lately on where and how to download the ISO and how to do an in-place install. Read through several of them, and ask any questions you have.

      Download wushowhide and run it. Does it show 2004? I would be surprised if this was the case still for 1909 Home. I would think it would now be 20H2.

      Help us help you by giving us some information to go on.

      What version of Win10 are you running?
      What were the last updates you installed? (KB numbers)
      What fixes have you tried? (There is no need to repeat fixes that don’t work).
      Have you recently rebooted your modem/router/computer?
      If you are running Malwarebytes, have you tried turning it off? Do you have the latest version installed?
      Have you updated the drivers for your network card?

      It looks like using the “Custom” option wipes the SSD. I have full Macrium backup/image of my Win10Pro 1909 system, but would prefer not to go that route. Have I missed something?

      Yes. If you boot from the installation media it will do a clean install, wiping you previous installation.
      To do an in-place upgrade, you need to access the installation media from within your current operating system. Boot up your computer and then insert the install media.

      You should do the upgrade OFFLINE. If you are online, you will be upgraded to 20H2 in the process of the installation. Say NO when it asks to go online for updates.
      Disconnect from the Internet and your network. Navigate to that drive letter where you media is located and run setup.exe.
      You will be given three choices of what to save: your apps and data (will preserve your programs and data), only your data (you will have to reinstall and third-party programs), or save nothing (basically a clean install).

      Your version of 2004 will not be up-to-date.
      Before you go online, go through the Settings App and be sure your settings are where you want them. Pay particular attention to Windows Update settings so you don’t get bombed with 20H2.
      Once online, you can update like you usually do. Since we are at DEFCON-3 you can update to the OCT patches.

      v2004 cannot be installed from Windows Update at this point. If you use WU, you will get v20H2.
      If you intend to upgrade, you should make a full disk image and a separate file backup of your data first.

      To install v2004, you will need to use the ISO. If you do not have it, you can download the Windows ISO Download Tool from Heidoc.net, place it on your desktop and run it, Choose the latest (date) ISO for v2004 that matches the bittage (32 or 64 bit) of your PC. Save the ISO to your desktop.

      You should do the upgrade OFFLINE. If you are online, you will be upgraded to 20H2 in the process of the installation. Say NO when it asks to go online for updates.
      Disconnect from the Internet and your network. Right click on the ISO and choose “Open with File Explorer.” This will mount the ISO as another drive letter. Navigate to that drive and run setup.exe.

      If you can’t find it, then it may already be turned off or not available to your machine.

      If that’s the case, see #2307850.

      Avast was caught recently data harvesting/selling.
      The Suite has too many different things (additional controls) it’s trying to implement.
      The last time I dealt with a computer where it was installed (it’s been a while) it was a resource hog.

      1909, 2004, and 2010 (that’s right, not 20H2, according to @abbodi86).
      See #2307172.

      You are not really serious about installing 20H2 yet, are you? It’s Beta!
