This morning my computer rebooted for no apparent reason.
Then a screen said "Please wait" without the harddrive activity light doing anything for a half hour.
I pushed the power button and the computer went off. I pushed it again and nothing happened, repeatedly.
I unplugged it and tried again. Nothing happened. I kept pushing the power button and eventurally it turned on and said "working on update 100% complete", with the activity light on solid.
I came back in 10 minutes and it said "working on update on update 30% complete". It gradually went to 100%, rebooted and said "couldn't complete update".
After it came up, and checked my updateds. The machine says I am up to date, with the date of the last update 2 days ago.
1) Why did it just hang on "please wait"?
2) Why wouldn't it turn back on?
3) What was it doing when my last update was 2 days ago and I am now up to date?
2 days ago it did 3 updates, most prominently '2017-08 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4034674)'
