Re: which version was that again ?
The problem here is that people like to complain when things go wrong, they dont pipe up as much when things work, Yes some people have had issues, but whats that % wise of the install base of windows 10?
I have installed windows hundreds probably thousands of times in the past, i don't regale people with the tales of the times that windows installed issue free, I do however tell them about the one time that an in place upgrade screwed my data ONCE 15 years ago.
Its the same with linux, billions of installs across the world.. ticking away just fine. But if you google linux right now the news is full of stories about it not being fit for purpose in Munich and it being replaced with windows... To the layman the perception would be that linux isn't that good.

Setting up your connection as metered might be a good idea?
"you may have a working computer with another 25GB space used up"
You have x days to roll back from the update, during that time a backup of your old installation is kept on disk. If you don't rollback this will be removed automatically freeing the space back up.
