You can configure Active hours through Group Policy.

Note that you can only see the new policy after you update the ADMX templates with the latest version for Windows 10 in the Policy Definitions folder on your Windows Server or in the Central Store.

The option, Never check for updates (not recommended), of previous Windows versions, can be configured by disabling the policy.
