problem installing the current basic miktex package on a new win10laptop

John Baldwin
1) It was not clear that the install actually completed.  When I gave up
and clicked NEXT
the top of the installer read something like: execution in process.  But
the bar showing operations had not moved for 10 minutes  Yet the list of
operatiosn done stopped in midsentence.

2) I went ahead with update with following result:
