    Checking update history shows no errors, just the update waiting to be installed.

    Here's what happens: update goes all the way through to the end, then it hangs with a black screen with the little dots going round and will sit like that for as long as I'll let it. There's no hard drive activity during this period.

    When I eventually get bored of waiting, I do a hard reboot and the previous version is reinstated.

    Any ideas how to move on from this?

    To update to anniversary update and face minimum bugs or none use media creation tool by Microsoft. By personal experience it is the best way to upgrade to anniversary update.

    At present you could try disabling any Antivirus. Disconnect any external devices you don't need and retry installing.
