I had one such issue recently when a Prompt all but Forced me to update as it indicated:

Restart and update to stay in support

Support for the Windows 10 April 2018 update ends in November 2019. Restart to install a supported version of Windows. “

After updating I noticed that my Logitech wireless Keyboard stropped working. On Further inspection I noticed that my phone would only charge and would not pop up so I could remove my files.

This indicating that the USB ports stopped working after the update. USB keyboard and mouses would also not work at all. When I checked device manager it showed all drivers were installed and working.

What did all this mean?
