Normal as far as I know. I ended up on the ‘several steps behind schedule’ for a while until I forced the major updates to resume via the download of the update package on a USB key. I cannot now remember which one was very slow to arrive but most of the family machines stepped over one because they were all out of synch. Since then updates have arrived more or less normally. I delayed and delayed doing daughter’s machine and then just as I was thinking I must act it woke up and went ahead anyway. My wife saw the different screen, had a mild panic attack but most things were OK. Only the WHS launcher is abnormal it runs faceless, but still backs up ok. I tried the old uninstall and re-install but it still sulks perhaps I should try an uninstall a restart and go again. Because of her state of mind I worry about going near her machine unless the hounds of hell have been unleashed.00February 8, 2018 at 8:41 pm #16734
Looked earlier and there were 2 updates sitting on the update screen awaiting re-start, told it to re-start and I’m up on to 192 atm.👍00February 14, 2018 at 10:20 am #16853

Yes, it made a big song and dance about taking care of my interests with a message on screen, but at least it installed quite quickly, though with a reboot. I did not want to keep it hanging about so got it done while I brewed tea or something else. At least the services all restarted without a problem, this has not always been the case so manually starting them has been the order of the day.00February 14, 2018 at 12:53 pm #16855
Just went through reasonably straightforward – slight hang on “updating personalised desktop” but left for a minute it all came through OK.00March 6, 2018 at 12:23 pm #17338

The old one ‘broke’ Windows Explorer for me (needed to do an Explorer restart in Task Manager), the fixed one is fine..00March 14, 2018 at 8:58 pm #17627

Windows 10 cumulative update KB4090913 and KB4088785
Downloads, await restart, on restart it’s not installing. Then checking installed updates, it says failed to install. It downloads again and goes through the above.
It’s become a viscious circle, how can I stop it, it’s eating my bandwidth.
It says it’s for creators edition 1709 I have that version.

Failed on my V110 laptop first time, second time all OK.00April 11, 2018 at 1:01 pm #19505
Oh don’t say that I had that issue last month with one of my portables and I have yet to do the two family machines, one starting at this moment…00April 11, 2018 at 3:01 pm #19514
The older one done going straight through, but the newer one failed the first time and now ‘undoing the changes‘ very slowly…00April 11, 2018 at 3:41 pm #19517

My or rather the families newer portable threw its toys out of the basket and it was the whole stop this stop that and rename the other folly to get the install to go ahead, so four done and one to go. The user of that is really not famous for tolerance on a good day, today is not a good day. Forget bear with a sore head, the bear would come off second best so I am now settling for 4 out of 4 done, three good but…00April 11, 2018 at 7:11 pm #19531
Mine, that couldn’t get past Anniversary Edition, has now just updated the last 3 or 4 updates without any drama – searching for a tree to cuddle!! – but they have all been relatively minor ones.00April 11, 2018 at 11:10 pm #19539

Without thinking, I told my computer to update and shutdown before I removed the hard drive to install a replacement. Walked out of the room to make a coffee, and heard the computer restart. Came back to an error message along the lines of no boot record found. Couldn’t boot from a Windows USB drive either, as that would fall over once it found the error.
Several hours of trying live discs later and I managed to get the USB drive to boot. Found out that the update had done something to either the drive letters, or the boot record. Copied everything from F: (100MB drive) to G: (what has always been C: )and got back into Windows. Used EasyBCD to wipe and set up the boot record, and it seems to be working so far. (Still no idea why it chose those letters though!)00April 12, 2018 at 8:31 am #19552

It naffed up a bunch of short-cut desktop file ownerships for me that required a restart to fix.00April 12, 2018 at 9:45 am #19553

That is a strange thing, I had a similar pattern, my wife’s PC did one of the big ones three big ones back, but nothing else did and they were getting left behind. Someone I know suggested down loading the update to a USB key so I did that and all of the machines bar one went straight through the remaining machine then woke up, (did not disturb the rival to the bear with a sore head) and completed its updating in one giant leap to be ready for said user to go ahead with their day. Since then all, have for the most part been happy machines. I still avoiding prodding the bear’s rival.00
