In my work day I spend 30% on planing and designing, 30% on tutoring and meeting, 20% writing new code, 10% fixing bug and 10% creating new bugs...
I always say that the bugs of today are the bread and butter of tomorrow...

As much as I hate to walk up to my computer in the morning and find out it's been rebooted because Windows decided to install some updates that triggered a reboot, at least that doesn't happen nearly as much as Android seems to wait for me to start using my tablet to download updates, slowing it down to the point of making it unusable. That seems to be the case every time I reach for it and pick it up.
I never explicitly turn off my tablet - the screen eventually turns off on its own, and tapping it brings it back to life immediately, so I know it--at least--has NOT done a full shutdown. So why can't it use the time when it knows I'm away from it to update itself rather than wait for me to start using it, which seems totally backwards...
I have at least 3 Android tablets, ranging from 4.3 to 6.0, that get some regular use. And they all do that.
I just walked to my computer and pulled a new part it had printed overnight out of the 3D printer. If I had found a ruined half printed part instead, I would probably already be thinking about a replacement. Not that I would ever even think of installing Win 10 for this and other reasons.
And yeah, all my problems can be fixed. Sure, but why get something that requires so many 'fixes' in the first place?
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
I suspect it has probably got something to do with not wanting to drain the battery without user noticing. If you ever notice the battery drain during these updates you'll see that it is too much. But then this reasoning would mean that the phone should update if/when connected to the charger whether or not the screen is on, I wouldn't know the answer I never hooked up my phone for that long.
But if you are really tired of these updates you could just turn auto update off from PlayStore app or keep your phone's battery below 30.
