Disable auto-updates (if you haven't), and load this reg key to stop WU from downloading 21H2.
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"ProductVersion"="Windows 10"
"TargetReleaseVersion"=dword:00000001
"TargetReleaseVersionInfo"="20H2"

nuhi - Target release version is missing 20H1 & 20H2.

I can see bricked systems with auto update and wu ignoring any settings blocking the "upgrade".
It will not end well.
