The new update regimen is working perfectly smoothly for the vast majority of Windows 10 users or the tech press would be having a field day with it.
Using posts on bleepingcomputer as a metric for how awful something may be is fraught with error since the reason most turn here is because something has gone wrong for them. This is not unlike automotive forums where the vast majority of traffic is about fixing one thing or another. Places that you turn for help in case of trouble are completely unrepresentative of any given population as a whole.
That being said, there have been some installations of Win10, particularly if done via the upgrade process, that were cursed from the outset. Usually the best thing you can do for these is to back up your user data files and do a completely fresh install via media you create using the Media Creation Tool. You can (and probably should) try running DISM [three steps much discussed here] first, then try a Reset install with "keep my files" second, and a Reset install not keeping anything third before resorting to a from scratch install.
I have yet to hear from a single client of mine that's using Windows 10 that they are having any issue with the automatic updates and I've had only one, very early on, and it was patched far more promptly than these sorts of things have been in the past, which I chalk up to the system health telemetry monitoring as updates roll out.

. . . the presumption of innocence, while essential in the legal realm, does not mean the elimination of common sense outside it. The willing suspension of disbelief has its limits, or should.
