 But I have one problem. I don't get updates through settings! Well, they will show that the update is downloading.....(and then it will show installing). But after restarting the PC, no changes occurs! Then when I use Windows Update Assistant to update my PC, it worked well and brought many cool features! What is wrong with the update downloading in settings? Please tell if you know. 

Kind Regards

I have 3 machines, 2 desktops which have updated with out this issue, and a laptop which has this issue. All are on the same version/build of windows - 20H2/19042.746

Troubleshooter/Update says it cannot find anything wrong with the system, so as I have said the only way to fix it I have found is the unistall it then prevent it reinstalling using "wushowhide.diagcab".

I don't require advice on how to fix it, the fix, until M/Soft do something about the update) is to remove it on any machine that exhibits this same problem. And yes I have reported it to M/Soft and never had any response other than to try reinstalling windows - seriously bad advice!

This is the problem with posting in a discussion thread. I was not answering you but another user. If the response to the other user is no good for you then you don't need to comment back.

You have to accept there is a reason why the laptop is affected and the others aren't.

If you use the Feedback Hub with the laptop then the telemetry can be collected and a subsequent cumulative update may fix the issue but you need to give as much detail as possible about the laptop and look at the KB changes page.

These comments are by other users and not Microsoft.

So, I woke up to my laptop working in automatic repair mode this morning, and it telling me that automatic repair could not fix whatever issue occurred.  I went to Advanced Options to see about going to a Restore Point, and the most recent was this morning at ~12:30AM for Windows Update.  However, it says it cannot restore because of disk corruption.

Surely, it cannot be coincidence - and it seems that Windows Update has FUBARed my laptop.

Very annoyed at the moment. I've moved all PCs in our domain to the latest (January 2021 Cumulative Update), except for two PCs that run AMD Ryzen 7 chips, which BSOD with "bad pool error" after install and then automatically roll back the update. Anyone else having issues with the update (KB4598242)? The only other time I've run into this problem with cumulatives was with a laptop (also running Ryzen 7) and after ensuring all drivers were up to date, the stupid cumulative still would not install! Ended up having to reinstall Windows to get that one going several months ago. What a PIA!

After a Windows 10 update last night, I lost ALL my Pictures (everything in the pictures folder), everything in the Documents folder, everything in the Videos folder.  Anything I can do?  Thanks for any help you can provide.  I am not restarting my computer until I hear back from someone here with advice.  Art

Art, sounds like you are signed-in with a temp profile. Restart you computer 4 times using Start > Power > Restart and check for the files again.

If that still does not show your files then open File Explorer and expand This PC then C:\ select the users folder, does it show a folder called temp?

Please confirm before doing anything else.
