David is this problem on the windows updater only?  The reason I ask, is they can be downloaded from  Have you tried that to see if the problem exist going that route?

I would say, that if it is possible to perform the updates manually, then you should do so. At least, you will know if the update downloaded and installed. Also if you can, make sure that you don’t have thos culutive updates, i find those to be a problem especially those with the net framework if i’m not mistaken. I’ve encountered error messages when trying to update these specific updates to my windows 10 machine using 22H2 version of windows10

Ah, I see. Its all a bit confusing on Windows 10, I find as last night it presented a n update, then updates to .net frameworks, but had optional updates for drivers etc. However when I left it on the updates window. NVDA, kept stammering and never actually reading anything in its entirety, making it hard to tell what it was actually doing.

Are you saying they just don't do anything or are they more likely to muck
stuff up?
I would never say "they just don't do anything" nor that they have a significantly greater probability of mucking the system up, I just don't need them.

Many optional updates are "previews" of new features I just don't use, and they will eventually come in the form of a cumulative update or later Feature Update so I'm more than happy to wait until that occurs.

The other, of course, involves orcs.*
