In Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Enterprise, you can choose to pause the download and install the update. However, this option is not available in other Windows 10 versions, including Windows 10 Home:
Select the Start button, then select Settings> Update & security> Windows Update. Under Update settings, select Advanced options.
Enable Pause update. Note that after a certain period of time or after canceling the pause, you will need to install the latest updates before you can pause the update.

How do I make sure my device will reboot to install the update at a convenient time?

Select the Start button, then select Settings> Update & security> Windows Update.
Select Schedule a reboot and choose a convenient time for you.
