Run a hard drive diagnostic tool called Seatools for Windows and do the short/long test.
If the drive tests okay then do a "clean boot". Enable services and startup items a few at a time and until there is a slowdown.

I've just done the clean boot part of that (I ran command prompt chkdsk to scan for failures/bad sectors but it came up with no issues found, might still be worth running the seagate tool though, the hard drive is seagate), and discovered that the troublemaker is a service called App Readiness. This seems to have caused the major issues in the list - massive lag and 100% disk usage. I'm still worried about why it has this effect though, since almost no one else seems to have similar issues with this particular service.
At least it finally successfully installed a couple of updates, though there's still a long list of updates that failed and should be installed again.

I am not that familiar with Windows 10. Not sure why your updates have failed. Have you done a sfc /scannow to check for any missing or corrupt system files?

From RizwanPasha on Microsoft's Answers site:
As I have mentioned in my previous post App Readiness service, gets apps ready for use the first time a user signs in to this PC and when adding new apps. which means after updates if there are any large size of apps or updates installing it usually slow downs the computer after reboot.You may try the following steps to change the Startup type to Automatic or manual if it is set to Automatic (Delayed Start) and check of it helps:1. Press Windows key + X key together on the keyboard.2. Click on "Run".3. In the Run command search box, type services.msc and click no OK.4. Services windows open.5. In the Services Windows locate App readiness and right click on it.6. Select Properties.7. In the App Readiness properties window check if the Startup type is set to manual or Automatic.8. If the Startup type is set to Automatic (Delayed Start) change it to manual or Automatic by choosing from the drop down menu.9. Click on Apply and OK.10. Now check if the computer boots fast with App Readiness service enabled.

The other test you may want to do is Memtest+86. Run it for at least 6 passes and preferably overnight. The tool is available on the UBCD. Burn the iso file to disk by right clicking and selecting Burn Disk Image. Memtest+86 is available under the Memory Menu.
