    You can download an optional tool for Windows 10 called the Show or Hide Updates Troubleshooter. There are two versions, one for the Anniversary Update, and one for computers running the November (2015) update.

    You install this like any other program after downloading it, by clicking on the downloaded file in your browser, or heading to your downloads folder and double-clicking it.

    The troubleshooter should start and show a welcome screen. Click Next to perform a scan and find out which updates can be (temporarily) stopped from installing.

    Then, you can click on Hide updates and you'll see a list of the updates which you can stop. Tick the box next to each one you want to stop. It's best to use Google to try to find out which is the troublesome update rather than simply checking them all. The updates bring not only bug fixes and new features but important security patches. Without the latest updates your PC may be left vulnerable.

    Click Next and the troubleshooter will do its thing and hopefully show a screen like the one below showing that it has successfully suppressed the update(s).

    It's a good idea to keep tabs on when MIcrosoft has fixed the broken update so that you can use the same tool to unhide the update so it can install. The process is the same, as you'd expect. Just use the Show hidden updates option, and select those you want to un-hide:

    Setting your WIFI as a metered network also defers updates, you can do it from the properties section of your wifi connection
