Failed to Install Windows Insider Preview Build #18298

Presently I am on Windows 10 Insider Preview Build #18290.

The Windows Updates started downloading next preview version #18298. Once download was complete it automatically started installing it. The system rebooted and started undoing all the changes and reverted to the same old preview build.

So I started troubleshooting. I ran the in-built Windows Update troubleshooter and it came with no issues.

I deleted Software Updater things but it remained same.

I have sent my feedback to the Team.
