This rig was originally installed with 1803 or 1809, I think, and updated very recently to 1903.

After it was updated to 1903, the first thing I did was go to Windows Update, and get the pending updates.

Now, when I go to Windows Update, it says:
"*Some settings are managed by your organization"
"YOU'RE NOT UP TO DATE" "Last checked: Today, xxxxx"
"Your device is missing important security and quality fixes."

Now, I did have Shutup10 installed and used in 1809, and never had any issues with Windows Update.

I then updated, and updated, and updated 1809, until I couldn't update any more. Then I installed 1903.

I updated, updated, then I downloaded and ran Shutup10 (latest version), to default / recommended settings.

So, now I get what I'm seeing, Windows Update constantly tells me that I'm "Not up to date", no matter how often I click "Check for Updates".

All of the update settings are enabled (Red) in Shutup10.

I'm guessing that I'm going to have to do a Windows Reset to fix this.

Also, there was a Service Host: Networking Service process that was downloading at up to 18MBit/sec, without anything of mine running or consuming that much bandwidth. When I clicked on the arrow next to it, the child process said "Delivery Optimization", which AFAIK, means that it was downloading and caching Windows Update files. Yet, my Windows Update seems to be hosed, at least the UI portion of it.

A little lost as to what to do here.

Should I uninstall the three updates that are showing?

KB4521863
KB4515871
Security Update for Adobe Flash Player

Edit: I uninstalled the last two, top one was listed as a "Security update" and couldn't be uninstalled.

Rebooted, then did Windows Update.

I got a Net framework update, and an Adobe Flash Player Security Update.

But then it still says that "You're not up to date". :(

Is this purely a UI glitch that I'm going to have to live with?

A Windows Reset seems to have done the trick, although, after it re-installed Win10 after the Reset, Windows Update still said "Your settings are being managed by your organizations", BEFORE I had even run Shutup10. Supposedly, Win10 "remember" and "cloud saves" your settings, on some things, which really disturbs me.

Anyways, I was able to get "You are up to Date" with the green check-mark for Windows Update, both before and after running Shutup10, so I guess I'm good to go again.

What a PITA.

I hate Windows 10 update so much I actually have it disabled. It constantly starts downloading and running updates right when I'm doing some other important task.

I have disabled it in the past also, but then if updates are done manually, the updates overwrite the settings that disable updates. I'm migrating all my worker machines to Linux where they'll be left alone.
