Too many issues raised and mixed-up in a single post, in too many directions, to really help you on this one: Update issues, rambling about what is missing and what you like/don't like in different versions of Windows, email issue, megasync issues on outdated OS...

You seems very knowledgeable with computers.
Yet there are few basic things that could help you.

Updating XP much faster with Unofficial Service Pack 4

Update much faster on any OS (if you are sure what you do):
- Disable System Restore and delete any restore points before and after update.

Cleanup Windows Update leftover (any Windows version, any time):
- Open Admin command prompt
- Type Cleanmgr
- Check everything
- Let it go and recover dozens of Gb!

Windows10 annoyance:
- Disable bells and whistle and uninstall modern apps with CCleaner
- Use Classic shell
