I am on 1909 in my desktop. It was sitting idle for nearly an year. Yesterday got it fully uptodate. But was not offered any version updates.

So tried using Windows Upgrade advisor. It seems to fail with BSOD at around 90% mark.

Is there any way to find out the cause of failure?

Probably some hardware incompatibility. Let it stay until 1909 become EOL & then format & fresh install whatever the latest version is at that time.

I gave it 2 tries. Then for charm tried a 3rd time after shutting off internet, disabling anti-virus and firewall. This time it went through!

Because I keep my telemetry disabled, MS is probably not getting information of my update struggles.

EOL doesn't mean it will stop working. It means no further updates mostly. Better to upgrade to a newer version with security patches, etc
thanks. i know that buddy as i have spent some 20 years in IT area before switching to legal profession. i have used windows 7 pro for over an year after it was declared EOL. it was showing EOL for many days so i updated it as i had time. posted here to inform others about no immediate crash or problems etc. as there was just one post regarding it.

Yes. Some March update did break my OS partially, SSD usage went through the roof (C drive). I had to reinstall Win10.
That is why creating a system image of C drive before doing updates is a good practice if you have the extra space, if updates break OS then simply restore the image(on a decent ssd it should take hardly 10 min for a 60-70gb filled C drive).
