My computer will not "restart" when prompted   Therefore, I cannot get any updates, as they require a restart..

What method have you tried to perform the restart? Is there a physical switch on your computer for a restart? Can you just shut down your computer via on screen prompts?

Yes, I can shut my computer down and put it on "sleep" with the power options, but I cannot restart with the power options.  Therefore, I need to manually shut it down and then turn it back on. Will updates and upgrades take effect if I manually shut down and restart?

In Win 10 when you press the shutdown button it doesn't really shutdown, it just 'pretends' to, a sort of suspended state. Then when you start your machine it doesn't have to start from scratch and then folk say ''wow, my machine boots in 5 seconds!!).

 

I have found that turning off fast startup solves many issues with updates and boot. Most of my friends and relatives have it turned off too.

 

It adds a few seconds to boot up but it's worth it for the issues it can solve.

 

It's worth a try as it is easily reversed.

Turning off the Fast Startup did not work.  So far none of the recommendations have solved the problem.  What about a system restore?  What are the disadvantages or problems I might incur if I did that?

If you system restore your computer to a date when it was working then you may have to reinstall programs you install after that date that is only negative think about restoring your system with System Restore tool.

That is assuming that System restore is turned on.
I say that because System Restore is disabled by default in Windows 10.

Reset this PC may have to be used if system restore hasn't been turned on.
Go to Start > Settings > Update & security > Recovery and click Get started below Reset this PC.

On the next screen, click Keep my files and follow the on-screen instructions to reset Windows 10.
You’ll see a list of apps that will be removed and be asked to confirm your choice before going any further.

In my experience of loading Windows 10 about 70 times on multiple computers, yes it is. That is a known feature of Windows 10.

System Restore is available and fully functional in Windows 10. As we mentioned above, however, the bad news is that this feature is turned off by default.
Even worse, the interface to enable and manage System Restore is relatively hidden in the legacy Control Panel

https://www.tekrevue.com/how-to-enable-system-restore-windows-10/

The snag is that System Restore is disabled by default in Windows 10

http://home.bt.com/tech-gadgets/computing/how-to-fix-windows-10-problems-with-system-restore-11364008291943

With Windows 10, Microsoft seems to have disabled System Restore by default
