    I realize that this has been posted many many times before. Posting it again because I have read every single one of those posts and tried every suggestion. at least 2 dozen of them anyway


    My HP Z book Windows 10 professional hasn't updated since January 19th.


    If I run the update troubleshooter, it claims to have found and fixed a problem, but still not able to update. It says "WaaSMedicService Issues remediated by: NoUsaScanPlugin"

    :)

  4. "We couldn't connect to the update service..."

    "We couldn`t create a new partition or locate an existing one."

    Try this:

    Before you get to that message, press SHIFT + F10 to open a command prompt.

    Run diskpart.
    At the diskpart prompt, run these commands:

    list disk

    At this point you should see the SSD as disk 0. If it has another disk number, use that number rather than "0" in the next command.

    select disk 0
    clean
    exit (to exit from diskpart)
    exit (to exit from the command prompt)

    That should clear the contents of the disk. The entire disk space should then show up in Windows setup as "Unallocated Space" as in the screenshot below.
