Why is my windows update stuck on downloading updates? How do I kick it along?

From the apps menu I select Windows Update tile.

I then have the following screen which I have left on overnight and have attempted the update a number of times with rebooting.

It the same message each time and stays that way the entire time. The device has internet access.

  • Sounds like a problem with downloads... Again it could be the infamous SD card problem that causes most software issues on the Pi. What I mean the SD cards seems to die allot with random cards. Best cards I ever used where the Samsung ones.. but you need to verify they are not fakes too.. Its a nightmare. – Piotr Kula Oct 8 '18 at 8:23
