Good find!

Do you think that "internal upgrade" is for upgrading to Win10 or just updating Win7 WU to the never version of Win7 WU?

Several flavors of Linux (Mint primary) / 32bit XP, Win7 HomeP / 64bit Win7 Pro, Ultimate / 64Win8.1
 
 

Not sure but for decades MS has held to consistant terminology where:
  • UPDATE is a patch of code released to address certain issues or to activate specific functionalities. (The need to release an update stems from the fact that there are certain problems that are not apparent before the product is released.)
  • UPGRADE is the act of replacing a product with a newer, and often more superior, version or similar product.
(Therefore, an update modifies a current product while an upgrade totally replaces it.)

If that still holds, anything that states "upgrade" is suspect to me.

Good points. I agree that it's suspect. Plus, when you add in the context of Microsoft pushing upgrades to Windows 10 in very questionable ways, it makes it even more suspect.

It's challenging, because I have a system with Windows Update issues, so I would like to update it to the latest Windows Update. On the other hand, based on their actions, I don't feel like I can trust Microsoft to keep Windows 10 in their pants where it belongs.
