    I did it but still stuck at getting updates.what i need to do?
    after calling Microsoft on it, giving them your email will allow them to unlock the Media Creation Tool for you. once you redownload the Media Creation Tool again and start the download, it will give you the option to either scan for updates then or to do updates when you are done installing Windows 10. it worked fine for me.

    Note: I know the above is an old post but perhaps other people can benefit from this.

    Leave the Windows 10 Setup window as is and try this:

    1. Go to Services (Press Windows+R. This will prompt run dialogue box. In here, type services.msc) and stop the Windows Update Service.

    2. Go to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and delete all of its contents.

    3. Restart the Weindows Update Service.

    4. Go back to the Windows 10 Setup window and you should see the process continue.

    Hope this works for you!
