    Windows 10 updates stuck on downloading 0%


    I have been updating my windows 10 laptop but it's stuck on 0% for about a day and doesn't get past that. I've tried every possible solution available on the internet but it doesn't work. I will try to explain everything I did.

    1. I ran the windows troubleshooter a dozen times but it doesn't find anything. Every time it saidTroubleshooting couldn't identify the problem. Rebooted, but same thing.
    2. I tried sfc/ scannow, rebooted but the same problem.
    3. I tried DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, same thing.
    4. Then I disabled all startup services and reset windows update using this guide, but sadly this didn't work as well.
    5. Finally, I tried some scripts that will reset the windows update but again bad luck. script1, script2

    I don't know what's the problem that's keeping updates from downloading.

    Someone told me to see the windows updates .log file, so I pulled up that file, but I don't find anyERRORS in that file so if someone can help me. This is the log file.


    If I let it run for 3 or 4 days, it shows some progress, but then it starts throwing errors one by one.

    Hello everyone, Windows Update has been stuck at 0% every time I've tried in the last couple of days (see screenshot). These are the two updates available:


    • Security Update for Internet Explorer Flash Player for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3103688).

    • Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3105213).

    Windows Update stuck at 0%


    Hi, I have a Windows 10 notebook, Windows updates downloaded and installed fine. I installed Office 2016 and when running WIndows Update it will list all available updates for Office, but it's always stuck at 0% downloading. Any hint? Thanks

    UPDATE: Disconnected/Reconnected Internet access and restarted Windows and somehow that cleaned it and WIndows Update resumed normal operation.
