I've had a couple times when I tried to shut down but Windows said it
had to install updates and then shutdown.  Which it did okay.

I'm confused what the setup has to do with this.  If you have
Automatic Updates on, it could be fully automatic or it could be
"Notify but don't install right away."  Do these two settings have to
do with whether or not it will install during shutdown?

If it is fully automatic, you can also set a time, and I think the
time selected can cause Windows to update during shutdown.
