Win 10 version 1803 Feature Update fails. Error 0x80070643 and 0x8024200d



Laptop running like treacle. I found in Windows Update that the feature update was downloading, then preparing, then installing but very very slowly - over an hour.

Checked on line. Followed advice to run the update troubleshooter. I had to do this manually as it failed to run from the link. When it ran (after telling me there was a newer version) it did it's stuff and reported there were errors in the update database and that problems had been fixed.

I next tried to download and install the update manually but that bombs out saying the version chosen (X64) is not applicable.

What do I do next?
