Merging highly recommends you defer updates in Windows 10, as major Windows updates can make your system unusable.
This allows such updates to be further tested and approved by Microsoft, and Merging.
Updates can be configured on Pro, Educational or Enterprise editions of Windows, not on home versions!
You may also rather Pause the updates for 30 days, follow this page for detailed instructions.

Prevent Windows 10 update to new Major version
Since Windows 1803, it is possible to prevent Windows 10 to upgrade to a new major version.
Such update will not be automatically downloaded and installed on your computer, but it is still possible to update manually, with Microsoft Update Assistant.
(MassCore users should first make sure that the MassCore engine is compatible before upgrading to a new Windows version - see this page).
Please note that Merging can't guarantee that this setting will continue to work with new Windows 10 versions.
According to Microsoft "it will work until the policy is changed to a newer Windows 10 feature update.”
