As the title suggest, the Anniversary update 1607 repeatedly fails to install. After configuring updates, it just fails and goes back to reverting changes.
If I let my computer restart and update by itself, it fails to install.
If I click the restart button in the settings, it fails to install.
If i click the restart and update button in the power menu (the one with shut down, sleep, hibernate, etc.), it fails to install.
Disabling my antivirus before restarting does not help

I'm really getting sick of this. I have been trying to get this stupid update to install for months, to no avail. It's even more annoying because I have the version of Windows 10 that force you to update sooner or later. For some reason, even though it says it will try to update during a time I don't use my computer, it always sets the time to 10 pm, except that I use the computer at 10 pm all the time. Sure sometimes i can reschedule, but sometimes it doesn't restart and update at the scheduled time and just switches back to 10 pm. If it fails to update, it does not let me change the time from 10 pm to a more convenient time.
The only way I've found to be able to delay the update is to just hibernate my computer before 10 pm, then turn it on after, so it has already passed the scheduled time. However, this is still super annoying, as it is very disruptive when I am doing homework.
None of the failed update attempts after the first recorded anything in the update settings, and I don't know where the log went. It seems to have disappeared after following the steps in https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-update/windows-update-anniversary-update-fails-to-install/38da18d2-7806-4cf1-bae6-740b3416cc7f
Why does Windows 10 force us to update? Even Windows 8.1 was better about that.
