Feature updates take you from one version of Windows to another, such as from Windows 1909 to Windows 2004.

features to set the time span (up to 35 days).

In advanced settings you also have the option to postpone Feature
Updates from even being presented for up to 1 year (365 days) and
quality updates from being downloaded and applied for up to a month (30
