  1. Working on Updates stuck at 29% complete


    My laptop has been doing the latest Windows update for over a couple of hours now. How long should this take? I've been stuck at 29% complete for pretty much the entire time. I would have expected some progress and I don't want to shut it down as it specifically says Don't turn off your computer. I have work that needs to be done so need to know if it's actually doing something or stuck.

    :)

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Working on Updates stuck at 29% complete :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

    Update to Windows 10 version 1511 stuck at 29%

    Hi,

    Welcome and thank you for posting in Microsoft Community. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about upgrade to Windows 10 version 1511 as the update stuck at 29%. We will help you with this issue.

    This issue might have occurred due to corrupted Windows Updates components, anti-virus software, speed of internet connection.

    • Do let us know if you are using wired/ wireless internet connection?

    If you are using wireless internet connection, I suggest you to switch to wired connection (Connected the internet cable to your device) and try if you are able to run the Windows Update.

    Method 1: I suggest you to uninstall anti-virus software and run the Windows Updates troubleshooter.

    Step 1: Disable anti-virus software. If the issue still persists, try to uninstall the anti-virus software.

    NOTE: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install
    other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Step 2: I suggest you to
    run the Windows Update troubleshooter and check if you are able to install the updates.

    Windows Update Troubleshooter resolves problems that prevents you from updating windows.

    Steps:

    • Press Windows + X, click on Control Panel, select
      Category and then select Large or Small icons.

    • Click on Troubleshooting
      and click on View all in the left pane.

    • Select Windows Update
      to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter and follow the on-screen instructions.

    If the issue still persists then,

    Method 2: I suggest you to try the steps mentioned in
    Reset Windows Update components
    and check if you are able to find the Windows Updates.

    Registry disclaimer: Important this section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that
    you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    Refer to the below article to backup and restore the registry in Windows:

    Note: The above links applies to Windows 10 as well.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of this issue, we will be happy to assist you further.
