haha. It gets worse. In Settings / Windows Updates it tells me I've "paused" updates. There's a link that says "See what's new in this update". Clicking on that opens a (non-standard) message box that says "You'll need a new app to open this ms-get-started link". What's an "ms-get-started" link?? There's an OK button but no others. The OK button is disabled. (Fortunately clicking anywhere, in or out of the message box, closes it).

So I need to update something (what?) in order to find out what the updates are.

When I go to Settings / Windows Updates / View Update History, it shows me a blank screen under "Update history". Even though I know previous updates have been applied.

Just how bad can you get, Microsoft??
