Although very few users actually stated that there have been improvements after updating it, I named the update in the title this, because the following may occur when you make an attempt at it:
Missing files during installation generates the 0x80073712 error message while trying to install the Windows 10 Fail Creators Update. Great. An installer that does not have the files needed to complete itself.
Critical driver not compatible: 0x800F0923 error message indicates that an app or driver isn’t compatible with the upgrade process. Or so they say. Usually, it’s the graphics driver.

General installation errors: Error: We couldn’t complete the updates. Undoing changes. Don’t turn off your computer. / Error: Failure configuring Windows Updates. Reverting changes.
These errors are general messages that usually appear as you try to install a “quality update” as well as during a “feature update”.
Your installation may not re-activate Windows activate after the update and you will see the Windows not activated message with a 0x803F7001 error in the Settings app.
