I am having a problem, inside a domain (2016 standard)  environment, with Win 10 Updates.
It isn't many, 2 or 3, that seem "stuck" at Build 1609 or Build 1803.
No commonality between hardware profiles that it fails on, notebook, SFF desktop, and workstation.
All were upgrades from Win 7 Pro 64 bit builds.

I have tried all the official fixes to no avail. Today, I put the image that came off the SFF desktop onto a similar workstation. It went on just fine, yet fails to boot. I'll be looking into that one with the back up software vendor, but up until working with these machines refusing upgrades, the back up restoration software been flawless.

I have even tried downloading and applying the latest update via the Windows Installer for the entire O/S, and it returns the same failures as they do through Windows Update. I suppose all I have left to try is running the update from a local administrative profile. That has worked for other weird Win 10 problems that I could not blame on HCL problems.

Anyone? All machines are 64 bit machines, the only thing in common they have.
Thank you.
