  1. Stuck on pending restart after 20H2 update


    Forgot to flair last post so it got deleted by mods

    After installing an ssd in my PC and reinstalling windows onto to it, I updated the new install to 20H2. Everything went smoothly, but the update will not complete and is stuck on pending restart, even after multiple restarts and shutdowns. My only thought is that the update failed, or the old boot partition on the hdd is messing with it somehow?

    Windows Update Stuck

    Updating my laptop which I haven't used for 6 months.
    I go to Settings, Update and Security, and there are a list of 10 updates, 2 of which say pending install, the others say pending download. Left laptop on overnight and still saying the same this morning.
    Ran Windows Troubleshooting Updates twice, both times found no problem.
    Have good Wi-Fi signal. Have re-booted several times. Now stuck. Can you please suggest how I get round this please.

  3. WP8: All my podcasts are stuck in 'Pending'

    I noticed this morning that none of my podcast subscriptions had been updated. When I looked at the list of Downloads in the Store, I saw that all the missing episodes were there and marked as "Pending". There was also two episodes that I'd
    successfully downloaded and listened to a few days ago -- one of those episodes was listed as "Completed" and another was listed "Waiting for Wi-Fi".

    (NOTE: I know that the out-of-the-box setting for podcast downloads requires a connection to wifi. I've been connected to wifi for at least the last 24 hours.)



    I think that the Podcast app is horked and is stuck in some kind of error state.



    I've tried:

    - toggling wifi

    - restarting the phone

    - enabling podcast download over 4G

    - restarting the phone after disabling wifi

    - deleting some of the pending episodes

    - connecting to a different wifi SSID



    Anyone have any suggestions?

  4. Stuck on pending restart after 20H2 update

    Windows 10 store on phone stuck pending

    Yes! Yes! Yes! I have found the solution a little bit typical but it will save you from resets and losing your data.

    STEPS

    1. Select update all in downloads and updates in store in windows 10 mobile phone.

    2. Let them start downloading .

    3. Now select pause all in same menu.

    4. This time you will get two option in front of all apps resume and cancel even on those apps which are stuck.

    5. Now cancel the every app from list by clicking on cross one by one.

    6. Now you have got empty download list but still you will see stuck apps in phone's app list at pending.

    7. Again open the store and search there for the same app which is stuck on your phone.

    8. Click on install on app page in store and wait.

    9. A pop up menu will come written something went wrong just close it and keep waiting on same page.

    10. Now the final step app will start downloading automatically and what you have to do is just click on cross when it comes.

    11. BINGO! App has been removed from your app list no hard reset no lose of data just a little patience is required i have found the solution myself because i was sailing in same boat.
