    I downloaded the update, but after the download it was supposed to give me the option to reboot, but it did not. So I had a look in view update history, and the update is there, but telling me to reboot. Rebooted, nothing happened, any ideas. Thanks

    So you looked in WU history to see if it failed to update?..That happened to my PC and I had to remove my third party AV for it to install.

    The only AV I have is the Microsoft one.

    I had same issue back in 2015 with one of my laptop.

    Try the solution below:

    1. Open Task Manager, click on service tab and stop windows update service wuauserv.
    2. Open File Explorer navigate to C:\Windows and rename folder SoftwareDistribution to SoftwareDistribution.bak
    3. Restart windows update service wuauserv and new folder SoftwareDistribution will be created.
    4. Run Windows Update again.

    If above still not worked then you will need to download media creation tool to create Windows 10 1809 to iso or USB.

    I have given up with it, as Microsoft have pulled it. As I said, I can see it in Update history. But, if I click on Uninstall an update, it does not show on the list to delete. Any ideas

    I don't think you can roll back this update. If this is what you are trying to do.

    ended up doing a restore to a time before it was downloaded.
