    i restarted and it seems like windows was installing those ordinary updates and no windows 10 setup screen appeared
    after booting to windows 8.1 normally windows update showed error code 800700050
    i searched the internet for it then realized it's permissions problem then got it sorted via the "subinacl.msi" i found on microsoft knowledge base
    now i tried updating again but it windows update says no updates available
    i checked my windows partition size and i found it larger than normal then headed to softwareDistribution/download folder and found a large file about 2.7 GB -same size as the update packageClick image for larger version.

    Don't wait for windows update to work, try upgrade it manually. In my experience, solving windows update problems take more time and effort than upgrade it by another way with the same result. anw, you can find the instructions below if you want to do it yourself.
