Thank you for an exhaustive list of solutions. I was sure something would work for me but sadly NOTHING worked. Quite strange my issue. Your stated Problem In Detail is exactly my problem. My Windows version is 10 Pro (20H2).
I'll continue to ignore Windows Update. It is only a nuisance. I'm not too concerned about the "security" issue. Thanks again for the methods. I'm so used to the same old worthless "solutions" of Disable Virusscan/Firewall, SFC /scannow.
