The worrying aspect is why we are thrown back into previous versions of Windows to deal with "recalcitrant network adapters" so often....

Hopping the user into the Insider ring worked and the update to 18362.53 takes them back out if you check the 'opt me out of Insider builds when this version of Windows is public' (I'm paraphrasing).
The ISO I have was built using UUP (18362.30) and increasingly I am hitting this 'can't be upgraded' message. As someone pointed out earlier, since 1809 the image is too big for DVD5 I am using a Rufus USB (64GB).
The workaround has been to do a 'Keep personal files' only upgrade. It would be helpful if the setup would provide some detail of the issue but it's fairly graceless. At the coalface there's not enough time to analyse what the sticking point is, but this news is fairly useful.
Machines often come without opticals now so your upgrade stick would be D: by default in the absence of all other (pointless) data partitions, especially on smaller SSDs.
So, musing around this point what about the Explorer|View|Advanced 'Hide empty drives' option? Tends to be unchecked and if an SD slot is present (without SD card or on a connected / mapped photo printer) would this also fail the install?
'This collaboration is absolutely critical going forward'... One positive thing about Meltdown CPU hole? At least it put aside tech rivalries...
All patchable machines can now be patched thanks to
version 2 which landed (without fanfare) on 5/2/19 as a standalone. KB4346084 (depending on 1803), KB4100347 (last updated 8/1/19, finally giving Spectre v2 patching to older CPUs). 19H1 will (does if you are an Insider) contain an updated mcupdateGenuineIntel.dll and the Retpoline kernel to deal with performance penalties on pre-Skylake CPUs
OEM responses have been varied between good, lamentable and non-existant.
If at first or second you don't succeed, you may be Microsoft: Hold off installing re-released Windows Oct Update

Every device should have a hardware reset option. AFAIU the 'reset' option is similar to other iOS based devices but it would appear the only 'reload' connection is via BT? Clearing / resetting is only possible from a working device - oh dear.
Have they hired MS staff at Apple? Maybe the QA department can't have a series 4 Watch as it's outside operational budget....
Is this really any different from the key set you get when you buy a non-Smart motor?
For years, owners have legitimately been able to get a key cut, chipped and or retain / lose / forget to pass on master keys.
So when you buy used you potentially have those sets floating around or unavailable. Yes, it can cost you money.
If we're talking about the data exclusively, you're not going to convince people that don't give a hoot to ever give one.
It's the manufacturers grasp for the big data that is the problem and they really need to be custodian for their errant subjects, end of.
FYI: There's a cop tool called GrayKey that force unlocks iPhones. Let's hope it doesn't fall into the wrong hands!

....mine's the bed with the horse's head in it.
Can't have it both ways. This is a zero-sum argument.
You've not seen the controls (or lack of) in Modern Apps.
I don't believe that there's a specific setting in Edge, most of the methods outlined on the web involve Group Policy Editor, so I'm not sure where that leaves W10 Home users.
The 'global' setting works for IE11 (Internet Options|Security|Custom Level|Scripting|Active Scripting) Enable/Disable.
Used to be a T-Mobile customer when it merged with Orange to make EE.
EXACTLY the same situation occurred. When I said I needed invoices for bookwork they offered to send me paper bils and credit my account for the paper billing. Only problem was the credit didn't match the billing charge from the second month then didn't stop when I changed back to paperless. Took over 6 months to rectify the portal and they refused to make the charges good.
After a couple of years away on Vodafone, I am back with EE but thankfully this won't affect me this time.
Expired Milk Analogy
Expired milk shouldn't be on the shelf, so it's a bad analogy.
Direct links to files should be discouraged, people should have access to a landing page with the latest version front and centre, retain the older patch levels by all means in an expandable list.
Links should be clearly marked with the version/build and date, filenames should be the same and file details should be too.
If people don't want to read the patch notes or test then that's on them, but the above should be the developers responsibility.
I would sign in for support of a mission critical software update or upgrade, download via credentials even. If the developers can't maintain such a system then their whole process is brought into question.
Re: How do you abort the update?
Sorry Bob, but that's just untrue.
None of Microsoft's update/upgrade tools have EVER done anything more than a cursory check of the CPU and RAM before ploughing an upgrade.
They stop with a nasty error code and sometimes neither want to go back or forward.
Oh and OEM support is just terrible; I'm sat here with a 2015 Acer that's had zero meaningful driver updates since build 10240. WiFi and Gfx particularly have been a major bugbear.
Yeah can't wait to leave EE, worst phone contract I have ever been imprisoned in. Mainly billing grief and petty additional charges. Website outages and arrogant CS staff. Mobile data is often not forthcoming. And I stupidly gave up voicemail, but dug my heels in and refuse to give them any extra money. Just counting the days.
Alien, whist being entertaining, isn't attempting to even try to be the same film Bladerunner turned out to be.
That's why, as excreable as Prometheus was, it didn't really harm the franchise. Being a prequel of sorts also helped to allow it to stand alone. Despite the promising cast and 'golden' director it sucked pretty hard.
I'd rather anyone attached to the original project gave it a wide berth. Hampton Fancher's screenplays for BR were manifold and finished by David Peoples. Harrison Ford hated making the film and it gives Deckard exactly what a 'straight' jobbing actor would have missed. Every aspect of casting, performance, production, cinematography, score, effects, finance and direction were a perfect storm.
They'd be messing with something absolutely golden if it were to be officially a sequel to the original movie. Just no. The sequel books were fan fiction. There is no after story.
It's highly frustrating
Yes, I'm adding my weight to the old adage "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
Compared to other banking websites, the Abbey 'interface' was at times cumbersome, but it worked. A little like my Nationwide account, which was also 'upgraded' and they introduced that pointless 'Credit Card Calculator' to generate some authorisation code to transfer money out of Nationwide. Pointless, and not fun. Considered moving accounts, but figured the devil I knew was better. Seems this is coming home to roost with Abbey. Was also quite happy, but in recent weeks the whole of the world's banking systems seems to have hit meltdown, when everyone realised all the numbers on the balance sheets were vapour.
FAIL - you ain't seen nuthin' yet............
