    And the following

    Rebuilt Windows Update and deleted Windows Update Cache.


    I have also run DISM and then SFC and re-booted.



    Then tried to run all above updates. Only one update came up as already installed. All others either failed when run or appeared to run and when asked to reboot it only got to 7% before restarting PC. have noted that the first time on shutdown, the update should reach 30% before re-booting and then completing the update to 100%. All those that got to the restart stage only reached 7% before apparently failing.

    Can someone please help? I have not run an inplace non-destructive upgrade.

    There are scores of others out there with the same issue and apart from these generic suggestions I have not seen one person come back saying they have fixed the problem and been able to update.


    Thank you in advance.

    :)

    Next Major Windows 10 Update Named "Spring Creators Update"

    The next Windows 10 service pack major update has been named "Spring Creators Update." Windows Insider Program users toying with Build 17618 of the operating system spotted a listing of all the major updates of Windows 10 known to the build, when running "Get-VMHostSupportedVersion" in Power Shell. The last entry reads "Microsoft Windows 10 Spring Creators Update 1803." The version number (1803 in this case), often coincides with the public release date of the update. The Fall Creators Update 1709, released in 2017-09 (September) to Insiders. Going by that convenion, Spring Creators Update could see a "branded" Insider preview build this month, 2018-03 (March), with a public release usually 3-4 weeks after, presumably before Summer kicks in.
