I cannot roll back any thing at the moment as I have pending work. I can use ethernet/usb tethering for backup.
I will have to contact HP Support in the morning to resolve the issue.

Any idea if the module is dead?

Just for future reference, always restart win 10 manually after any update no matter how small it is(except for windows defender updates maybe) or how it was installed(aka auto-update). I have noticed that many weird issues may come up if system is not restarted after some windows update & being used for hours/days(using sleep/hibernation).
