I'm not sure what the issue is with updates KB4048954 and KB4053580, but no matter how many times I reboot, update history tells me that the first update needs a restart to finish installing and the the second update failed to install. I am not sure how to interpret or correct this, and surfing has thus far given me only unhelpful and failed recommendations.

Can anyone give me a general diagnosis what this update history means, and point me in the right direction? (Or tell me even if I need to worry about this at all, since I am not having any visible issues outside the update history?) Thanks!

Here is the exact language from my Update History:

Feature Updates:

Feature update to Windows 10, version 1709
Requires a restart to finish installing

I would recommend performing the following as first steps to try and repair. Let us know if this works or not.

1. Go to Start and type in cmd
2. Right-click on the cmd icon above, and click (Run As Administrator)
3. Type each of the following commands separately after each one runs
sfc /Scannow - hit Enter key
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth - hit Enter key​
4. Restart and run Windows update

Quick question: when I tried the Rd command, I got the message that the directory is not empty. Ok to proceed?

Update history is now cleared. When I check for updates, it says I am current.

Do I use the troubleshooter next, or stop here?

If it shows you are current then you should be good. You can check your version by typing winver from run box or command prompt

winver says Version 1703 (build 15063.786). If I understand correctly, that means that the Fall Creators Update is not yet installed. If I got that right, should I care?

Thats correct. You will want to install the latest update sometime. I would recommend having a current backup image before proceeding. It has caused a lot of people several issues.
