I saw reports that MSFT had pulled the 1809 update due to data corruption.  Maybe that's related?

Use the media creation tool to download an ISO. Do this inside your Windows 10 VM and save it to a shared folder.

Then add this ISO to your Windows 10 VM. Now boot up your VM. Log into an administrator account, and in File Explorer open the ISO disc and run the setup program.

The feature update will install. This is the only way I've found to reliably install feature updates.

I agree, though do it a tad different.  I download the ISO image on the host and mount it as a CD drive.

Bonus:  One download and then you update each VM, runs MUCH faster.
