After a long trip went on 'view' update history' found the last entry: Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 8.1
(which I usually decline).for x64-based Systems (KB3135782) Installation date: 2016-02-17 2:02 PM Installation status: Succeeded Update type: Important.
Followed by 7 other 'important' updates for Defender all succeeded as 0ptional ,again I usually decline as I don't use Defender.
Then six updates (all failed) Upgrade to Windows 10 Home, version 1511, 10586
I'm using a notebook 8.1 64-bit Intel Pentium CPU N3530 @2.16GHz, 4.00 RAM, Intel HD Graphics and works well.
I'm puzzled with respect to updates, nobody but me has access to this machine. When I go for updates I get the famous
'come on' for Windows 10 and I have always refused the W10 updates since I'm not ready. I want to get an external
HDD just in case Can you please help.
