This may or may not prove helpful to some, but I thought I would pass it along just in case.
The steps, look pretty much like, some suggestions you could expect to find right here on this website, but they've consolidated them into a walk-through format so it might be handy for some to follow.

It's suppose to be something new but for the most part it looks a lot like a re-hash to me.

My response to the MS about their link. "This is a work around not a solution. Improve the quality of updates before release.

I am growing very weary of installing Updates multiple times, and of Windows trying to install items that require a restart during non-working hours. Do not like leaving the computer on that much. I just don't have time for untested Updates.

I know the last seasonal update would not install. It would get 93% then say it had trouble and had to restart. Then everytime I turned on my computer had to go through the same thing again. I called Microsoft and they absolutely
screwed up my computer so much that it would not even get onto a browser and deleted most of my icons and lot of the software would not work. I have elevated support but they always have to let a newby play with it and mess it up before they will let you talk to someone in elevated support. I finally got hold of someone and they have just about fixed all my problems. I paid over 150.00 for elevated support and I think that I should not have my computer screwed up by someone that simply reads directions in a manual and tries to fix things.

I dont usually have problems with updates. Reading this thread, I am now wondering why, although I have received KB4467702, which is listed in my history as a Flash update on my computers, it has not updated my builds..
I read that none of the "fixes" relate to problems I have had, but, (according to this thread : https://www.windows10forums.com/threads/needed-taskbar-icons-greyed-out.18134/)

the build should now be ***407. Anyone confirm?

And see here:

That would apply if you had 1803 17134 installed.
I don't believe that it pertains to those of us running 1809 17763

OK, forget it. I have just noticed the posters build is a little out of date.

Latest version updates should only be done with the latest version updates directly from the Microsoft page at e.g. 'Windows 10 May 2019 Update now available' on this page https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10 for v1903 and "DO NOT" try to do this update through "WINDOWS UPDATE", I've done v1803, v1809 and v1903 all through this "Windows10Upgrade9252.exe" but, I don't press 'Run" and download/update directly through the web, I let the .exe tool analyse my system directly, which always woks and I've never had any issues!

Note: the "Windows10Upgrade9252.exe" takes time "BE PATIENT" as the new v1903 OS Build 18362.175 takes a long time and reboots your system a few times!
