Eventid 6008 is for unexpected reboot. Windows update will not do unexpected reboot.

Check if there was any power-loss Or Memory dump if it's due to some application

Location for dump file:

C:\Windows\Memory.dmp

or

C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\

Check date and time stamps of Dump file.

"Windows update will not do unexpected reboot."

Gonna strongly disagree!!

For example

Deadlines and updates that require restarts

Updates that have deadlines and require restarts will cause a forced restart at the time of the deadline, no matter when the update was actually installed. For example, if an update with a 6:00 A.M. deadline was downloaded and installed at 3:00 A.M., but the computer was not restarted at that time, it will be restarted at 6:00 A.M.
