Just an update to Win10, which has been on this PC all along.
I took that photo with my phone after about half an hour. Before disobeying its admonition, I checked some sites... it seems some Windows updates, for all the not-antique versions, can take as much as three hours. As long as the drive light continues to blink every few seconds it hasn't locked up, and should be left to do its thing.
I came back a few hours later and it had returned to the desktop.
