Just surprised that the update service fails after notifying me to update

I totally get what you're saying.
They tell you, "Hey, there's an update available", so you actually believe it is _available_.
Meanwhile it isn't available (at some specific time for some unknown reason).

Also, here's the one that has been getting me.

Nothing is happening on herself's computer but she needs to reboot due to some software.

I say, "Sure, let's check to see if there is an update pending though. Okay, all safe, there isn't.
Just do a restart."
She does and then Windows 10 starts spinning. It spins a long time.
Well, don't you know it, there is an update that they haven't warned about anywhere but MS has suddenly decided that yes, we will update now because you decided to restart your machine.
So it spins a long while and doesn't mention it's updating.

So long that you wonder, is it stuck, should we power down? Let's wait.
Finally it restarts and says, "oh you got the latest update." WTF | :WTF: WTF | :WTF: Mad | :mad:
