    No, MS says if it got installed in your system there's no need to remove it.

    Think about it from a different perspective.
    Most regular users have no idea about what Microsoft does when they expire updates.
    There are hundreds of millions of them and Microsoft will take care not to cause them a major impact if they don't remove the expired update.
    Most likely, one of the next updates will supersede the expired update and as such the whole thing will be forgotten.
    It is your choice what to do with the expired update.
    If you want a personal point of view, I normally uninstall expired updates, but this is only because I am aware of those expired updates, like most of us here.
    Almost everyone else, if you take in consideration the numbers, have no idea and should be safe as well.

    Because it's not meant for 8/10, use KMS_VL_ALL or establish a hwid.

    It is legit and activated, it is upgraded from Windows 8, which is retail copy.

    It doesn't get to the reboot stage, it gets to 100% on the windows update page and then fails before where I assume it will reboot at the end.

    Yes, it found nothing wrong.. also tried Sfc /scannow

    Then I thought maybe it was because I had disabled cortana, so I re-enabled it and it still failed to install.

    Not sure what else to do other than install windows again.

    Try deleting the contents of the SoftwareDistrobution directory.

    Open an elevated Command Prompt and enter...
    Code:
    net stop wuauserv
    Then...
    Code:
    net stop bits
    Then navigate to C:\Windows\SofwareDistrobution and delete its contents.

    When done, in an elevated Command Prompt enter the following...
    Code:
    net start wuauserv
    Then...
    Code:
    net start bits
    When done, restart your computer and try updating again.

    **EDIT**
    Never mind, I see you fixed it. But keep these instructions in mind for the 0x800f0982 error in the future.

    There might be an incompatibility between Intel's 21.70.0.6 wireless network driver and 1909.

    Prior to updating to 21.70.0.6 I had no issues but after I can still connect without issue but the tray indicates that I am disconnected and network settings says that I have no internet connection.

    Is there a way to get the build string (e. g. 17763.rs5_release.180914-1434) of an offline image.
    I tried OfflineRegistryView by NirSoft, but it shows the same whether the image is updated or not.

    This is what I get from 17763.107.101029-1455.rs5_release_svc_refresh_CLIENTENTERPRISEEVAL_OEMRET_x64FRE_en-us.iso:
