I'd let this bake in the wild for a few weeks before considering it, and I recommend a backup all the time, but if you don't make backups regularly, make one before updating.

Of course you can also go to the download site, especially if you want to create installation media (USB flash drive or DVD), perform a clean installation, or reinstall Windows 10.  Download Windows 10.

Windows 10, version 1803 - Features that have been removed | Microsoft Docs

While the referenced article lists features removed or no longer being developed in the Spring Update (Version 1803), information is included about what has replaced the features or alternative methods to achieve those features/functions.

If you click check for updates in Windows Update and your machine has been OK'd to get the April update...

... guess what comes down and awaits a reboot to finish.

And I thought I properly had a Group Policy setting turned on that delays feature updates 60 days. Not sure what I missed there.

I had no issues with 1803 on my 2008 desktop so I doubt you'll have issues with what, I have no doubt, is a much newer device.

As I understand it, 1803 isn't being "pushed" to Windows Update until April 8.  However, a manual check of Windows Update will provide 1803.

That was my understanding, but I would have hoped having a Group Policy setting saying delay feature updates would actually delay it, no matter how updates are checked for. Assuming I had policy settings set correctly, I would believe the update wouldn't come down no matter what. Instead, I had to call my dad and tell him to avoid manually checking for updates because he doesn't want it in his office until it's been in the wild for at least several weeks. Perhaps I'm supposed to use Windows Server Update Services so I can control available updates on the domain. It's the only "workaround" I can come up with off the top of my head.

Hoping I've figured it out- policies pushed to both block feature updates for 60 days, and another policy to prevent manual check for updates.

It's easy! :P

Windows 10's April Update Crashes Systems with Intel SSDs
Quote
Microsoft has announced that it's blocking some systems with Intel SSDs from receiving the Windows 10 April 2018 update. Microsoft's April 2018 update began rolling out  to Windows 10 systems on April 30, but the update has caused some  systems with Intel SSDs to enter a UEFI screen reboot or crash  repeatedly. For now, users with unspecified Intel SSDs will not receive  the April update automatically, and they also cannot install the update  manually.
