I have W10 1909 version and the update is waiting for me. I don't know how long it's been there because I wasn't prompted to look until I read Steve's post. I'll pluck up courage to install it at some point.

The only advice I would give is the same as all Windows version updates. Ensure that all your external USB drives are removed first, other than that make sure you have a backup of your current system - if you take backups.

MS backups are no use if it can't read the drive. They are only useful if you want to fallback to a previous version from a functioning drive.

Steve, it may be relevant that I have the Microsoft Windows Update Assistant installed on all my computers (it's not part of Windows, and it must be downloaded and installed separately). That looks after all the major updates for me.

If it helps...
I only had a problem because of a momentary power issue that caused my PC to restart midway through.
I have successfully upgraded over 20 PCs at work to 2004 without a single issue.

Tim, yes I was aware of it and was seriously thinking of using it if it went on much longer.

I seem to remember that once it gave notice that some software I had installed needed to be de-installed. That was the UXTheme patcher. I had problems with windows update download would complete but hang with a black screen. It was the one thing that told me what the problem was.
