    KB5012170 has attempted to install 4 times now but keeps failing and i think it's because of my hardware configuration which won't change any time soon... is there a way to disable this particular update for now ?

    :)

    .WU attempts to install .net 5.0.5 when 5.0.6 is already there

    I tried stopping WU update service and renaming "Software Distribution" folder as first step

    It seems to have stopped the endless install attempt / fail loop

    I will keep my fingers crossed
