The joys of Windows updates

Now obviously on a server you don’t want updates to be installed at some random time, along with random reboots. I mean, it will be like that out of the box, with mission critical servers rebooting at 2pm because of… reasons… but with a GPO or a few config changes you can fix that until Microsoft makes it impossible without paying a monthly fee to not have them screw up your servers.

So you’re running updates. You click the button to dowload and install updates. It begins to download and install updates.

You come back five minutes later and… it isn’t installing updates and the button is just sitting there as if it had never been clicked.

Now usually this is because it installs a servicing stack update or something else that will cause the update-related services to restart, but man oh man is it annoying.

I can only imagine the programmer responsible for this is the same one responsible for adding copper to Minecraft.
