[Solution] - Unable to Upgrade to Windows 10 May 2019 Update (1903)

Problem:

I was unable to upgrade to Windows 10 May 2019 Update (1903) on my Dell Laptop, I was getting the following error during upgrade:


OxC 1900101 - 0x30018
The installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with an error during SYSPREP_SPECIAUZE operation

Solution:

I went through dozens of posts on the internet to find the solution, I came to know that the above error is related to drivers but it can be s/w drivers as well like installed VPNs thus I uninstalled all s/w based components.

I was looking for a non-destructive solution where I could retain my windows apps and settings but all solutions failed, finally I had to go with destructive upgrade where only the files would be retained by windows and the upgrade was successful, thus if you are facing a similar issue, try to go for destructive upgrade options.

I used MediaCreationTool1903.exe to create a bootable USB stick to upgrade Windows on my laptop, this can be downloaded from Microsoft.

What didn't work:

Windows Troubleshooter:

I also used Windows troubleshooter and found the following:

Windows Update
Issues found
Potential Windows Update Database error detected       Not fixed
      Repair Windows Update Database Corruption         Completed

Windows Update components must be repaired             Not fixed
      Repair Windows Update components                       Completed

Issues found
- Potential Windows Update Database error detected     Not fixed
Possible issues may prevent Windows Update from keeping your system up to
date.

Repair Windows Update Database Corruption                Completed
One troubleshooting step to resolve WU issues is to delete and re-download
updates to your computer. Would you like to try this step now? Depending on
your network configuration, you may incur download costs.

- Windows Update components must be repaired              Not fixed
One or more Windows Update components are configured incorrectly.

Repair Windows Update components                                Completed
Repairing Windows Update components frequently resolves common Windows
Update errors.

Encryption Keys:

There was also a recommendation to remove encryption keys, which I did nut it didn't make any difference.

PowerShell Scripts:

There were also some PowerShell scripts available online to reset upgrade settings in Windows but they didn't work either.

Editing Registry:

There were also suggestions to modify registry like the provisioning settings but that didn't work as well.

Thanks for such a useful post!
I purchased Uniwork 273XL Ink(6 pack) for Epson XP-600 from Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/d/Inkjet-Printer-Ink/Uniwork-Cartridge-Remanufactured-Printer-Magenta/B075DGFGG4), today I opened the 273XL Black and inserted it in the printer but it gave me "cannot recognize the cartridge" error, I have done everything from rebooting the printer to cleaning the cartridge, downgrading the firmware to removing the carbon band but nothing helped.
I would be grateful if there are any other suggestions.

I am able to find an older firmware for XP-600, you can add it in your table:
Epson Expression Premium XP-600 Firmware Update - Recovery Mode version MA28E8 : https://ftp.epson.com/drivers/epson16692.exe

I think I have found the issue. It seems the ink cartridges are different for American and Europian version of Epson XP-600 and as I ordered from Amazon, they sent me the American version without asking or mentioning about variations in versions, thus these are not compatible with my Europian XP-600.
