GeneralApparent circular dependency in VS 15.8.6 extension updates / problems in Windows 10 October update Pin

So, once again, MS is my source of laughs today. I get my notice to upgrade to VS 15.8.6, which I do. Everything goes fine...almost.

I see four new notices for upgrading some of the extensions. I don't use these particular extensions often, but I like to stay up-to-date anyhow. Two of the upgrades succeed and two fail. I retry those two, just in case something I did mixed them up. No luck.

So, I dig into the log files and find these gems (excerpted)...

Say it with me, "circular dependency", yeah! Thanks MS.

This also came on a day when I'm reading in the news that the latest Windows 10 update may delete (or hide) lots of files. So, I'm busy making backups as well. Thanks MS!

Some of the highlights of this lovely update include the following. Best of luck everyone!
