There is a way to disable updates in Windows 10 Home but it isn't recommended.  After you've emptied the Software Distribution folder, it wouldn't hurt to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter (again) as well as DISM from a Cmd prompt as Admin:  DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth.

Also, be sure to get a new copy of the WU Troubleshooter since it was updated Dec 11, 2018.  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10164/fix-windows-update-errors

Good morning.

All the above done. But I a try for a last time to install the update. Nothing. The computer freezes and becomes nonfunctional.
Keep on keeping on!

It is time to go to Sysnative then.  Be sure to describe the issue you're having when you provide the requested information. Windows Update Forum Posting Instructions

"for advanced users who manually select “Check for updates” via Windows Update."

So that would be all our grandparents who we security professionals taught to click regularly...

I believe the Windows group has its head up its butt.

The update has finally been installed!

https://www.sysnative.com/forums/windows-update/26969-problem-windows-10-update-1809-a.html#post242139

I will never check for updates again! It seems that every computer need specific updates for an older version before be ready for a new one.

Thank you. :)

Keep on keeping on!
