    Win10 Updates stuck downloading

    My Windows 10 version 1511 is set to download and install updates automatically but this morning, the updates download got stuck at 0% for a long time. Even after a reboot, it would not budge.
    Do you guys have the same problem here?

    Maybe during the downloading of the updates, I had turned off my notebook, so would that have a negative effect on the way the updates are downloaded or in process of downloading?
    So for example, next time if there is a Windows Update and the downloads are in progress, is it OK to turn off my machine while Windows 10 is downloading the patches or security updates?

    The only way I could recover from this mess, is that I read these steps from the below link.
    »www.thewindowsclub.com/w ··· -updates

    But overall in general, the way Win10 handles these updates is a PURE MESS, and I hope in Redstone, this will be fixed.
    I never had these issues in Win7...

    Multiple systems on multiple computer

    I had a hard time updating my 10586 (1511) Version so I let it update and download over night. DON'T !! it also downloaded the "Feature update", meaning the anniversary update and tried to install that. I interrupted the update so Windows will be forced to go back to the 1511 Version.
    Whenever a new cumulative update is available, I made it a habit to download it from the catalog:
    Microsoft Update Catalog

    that way I do not rely on the Windows update and can do that even disconnected from the web.. Has always worked for me...

    I did set it now to have me notified of a download, but the issue with that is that Windows Defender keeps notifying me whenever new malware definitions are ready to download. This is annoying.
