It's official: In May, Microsoft will close the door, lock the vault, brick over the entrance of dreaded Windows 10 1809

I'm still stuck

On the version before then. Windows Update reboots my PC, gets 60% of the way through the installation, then fails with a completely uninformative error and rolls back. Takes a couple of hours each time.

Windows Update is therefore in the lovely position of telling me that I'm completely up to date, but also need to update. Not confusing at all.

No idea what the problem is, but I've come to the conclusion that I need to delete everything I can to reduce disk usage (disk is full of games, so I can dl from steam again easily enough) image to another disk and re-install from scratch...

sigh.

I miss Linux

On the plus side, I missed the update of death.
