    There is also a power setting in the configuration settings under properties of the WiFi adapter, under "Power Management" that allows the computer to turn off the WiFi device to save power.

    I'm wondering if your system may be turning off the processor or ethernet connection during the lengthy download, thereby aborting the update.
    I have my power settings on "Never" as well.

    Yes, I ran the Microsoft fix (actually two of them) for permissions and checked for missing files. The error can also occur if there's a problem with a 3rd party driver but I've run the updates for those as well.

    Finally, Windows Fall Creators Update installed successfully. And it only took a month or so!

    Did you have to do anything specific or did it just require persistence?

    I had difficulty with the update on one of my systems with two successive apparent failures to install. After running the Windows Update Troubleshooter and several reboots, it finally installed.

    Maybe there's a problem with the update protocol...Oh wait...Microsoft can't make mistakes..

    It's difficult to be sure what was necessary and what wasn't but I used several tools from Microsoft to "fix" Windows Update, to fix system file permissions, etc.; updated all the drivers that I could find any updates for (they were basically all okay according to Windows but I was able to find a couple on the manufacturers' websites.

    In the attempt that was successful, I used the Microsoft Media Creation Tool to create an update media installation on a USB stick. Before running it, I disabled Windows Defender (my only real time anti-malware program) and used Task Manager to disable all non-essential startup services.

    Glad to hear you got it updated.

    I thought you had already tried that without success.

    For major version updates I use the media creation tool to create a USB upgrade stick so that I download it once and update all PCs. Then if something goes awfully wrong I always have a clean install stick handy. Not that anything could ever go wrong with Windows 10
