Updating/upgrading via CAB files is new to me, but I love it. It's fast, easy and seems to cause fewer problems.
On Ten Forums, and here, @Brink collects and posts the latest CAB files for update, upgrades, etc.
There is also a link in each thread, explaining how to install a CAB file.

Windows 10 News - Windows 10 Forums
Windows Questions News

Since I've started using this method, I haven't had any serious problems with updates or upgrades.
IMO, this is the best way to update/upgrade, that I have ever seen. I will be using this method...forever more. :)

Yes it's fast, and doesn't need internet but there is one time that something strange happened.
I have downloaded and installed an update using "WuMgr". Then after some days (or after restart in the same day, can't remember) I searched for updates using built-in Windows Update, and it is trying to download the same update that I have installed using "WuMgr" although I already see that update is successfully installed in Update History!
Thanks for your contribution.

For one computer when I had had Windows update problems installing using CAB was used during the troubleshooting.
The CAB method though had issues that I no longer remember for some Windows updates of non-Microsoft drivers.
Had you tried it for third party drivers: Intel, HP, Realtek, etc.?

If you want, you can add context menu to install .cab updates files.

@zbook I don't know and I can't remember. Maybe @Ghot will help you since he uses it always. I had a bad luck when trying to get around something in Windows or tweak or anything! That's why I use built-in Windows Update when I want to update it.
@FreeBooter good one and easy hack for those who always uses it especially in multiple computers.
