    windows 10

    Installation seems to have stalled.

    In 'Windows Update', the download has completed. It says it is preparing for installation but the process doesn't seem to be progressing at all. It's stuck at about 1/3rd. My net isn't that fast but long should the process take if the download is already complete?

    Should I click on stop download and start again? Or try disconnecting and reconnecting to the router?

    Disconnecting and reconnecting from my router helped jog it a bit or maybe clicking on the upgrade now button again helped but it's stuck again. Is this normal?

    Turns out the download ends at 12am according to my local timezone so I've changed my computer timezone instead and got an additional 10 hours to upgrade.

    Update: The upgrade was successful.
