Hi, britechguy & softeyes!
Thank you both for the prompt and insightful replies!
And thanks for the link!
I don't. If the update is critical in any way it is specifically marked as such and Windows Update will pick it up on the next check, and those are done once per day at a minimum.
If you check the purpose of the update to which you make reference it will most likely be something like, "Update Lithuanian currency for Office 2013," or the like. These sorts of updates roll out over the course of days similarly to the way feature updates to Windows 10 itself roll out, but over the course of months.
As it happens, the said update was KB4032188
and was important enough to increase the build number, however for some reason it did not automatically download as I had to manually trigger it by clicking the Check for updates
Which makes it semi-automatic at best, so I am wondering if one or more of the Windows Update Services are wrongfully set to manual when they actually should be set to automatic.
I have now checked said settings, and it turns out that Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS)
is set to manual. Windows Update (WUAUSERV)
is set to automatic (delayed start).
Should I change BITS
to automatic or automatic (delayed start)?
