Feature update to windows 10, version 1803 stuck

The Windows 10, Version 1803 update arrived on my laptop a few days ago, after which my frustration truly began. To begin with, Windows downloaded the Windows 10 1803 upgrade on my computer without first notifying me. I suppose that had something to do with how I had set up my computer to receive updates from Windows.

In any case, the Windows 10, version 1803 download size ranges between 2.5 and 6 GB in size, so you can imagine the hit that I got on my data plan.

The main problem of failing to update my computer to the latest version of Windows 10 really started, in any case, when it came to making the upgrade itself. After completing the download, Windows asked me to set the time when it would be most convenient to have my computer upgraded to version 1803, which I did.

Upgrading computer to Windows 10 version 1803

When the time came for my PC to be upgraded to the newest version of Windows, version 1803, the process started smoothly enough. The thing told me, through a message on the screen, that my computer was going to be restarted several times, and that the update was going to take quite some time. Being okay with both points, I let the process proceed.

The first few restarts went smoothly. However, a few minutes into the process, I realized that my PC was well and truly stuck in reboot mode. This is something that I have previously experienced when upgrading my computer to a new version of Windows.

Sometimes, the restart process just does not work, and one actually needs to force restart the machine in order to keep the Windows update process going.

When the update to Windows 10 version 1803 got stuck a few minutes into the process, I therefore, forced the issue by pressing and holding the power button. This forced the computer to shut down, after which I immediately restarted it.

Imagine my happiness when the Windows 10 update process immediately resumed. I thought I was over the woods, till, a few moments later, the Windows 10 upgrade process, once again, got stuck! Again, I turned the power off and on, and the process continued.

Just as I was about to congratulate myself for my own cleverness, the Windows 10 Upgrade process, again, got stuck, this time at 82%. Again, I pressed the power button, and turned the computer on and off.

To my horror,  the Windows 10 upgrade process got scrapped, and my computer began restoring itself to the previous version of Windows (it actually displayed the message in huge, bold letters at the bottom of the screen).
