Windows 10: Windows 10 setup: hangs on Checking for Updates
Just had that problem
I just had that problem..
I somehow got past that problem by stopping the windows update again, the same way as it says above ( win + R , services.msi , stop windows update service) and it works
I think it's because the two updating services are banging into each-other and causing nothing to happen
I hope it works, but I don't know much about this either
Services.msc, windows update started again
THANK YOU! That did it. 30 seconds later the screen changed and it went on.
It hung at 22% and I looked at windows update and it was running again.
Stopped it again and told it to be disabled until I set it back for delayed start after the upgrade.
We'll see what happens.
Almost immediately it was done and said do you want to install and save your files
and now it is installing.
Super suggestion. Just that it needed a bit more helping along.

hello there how do you restart windows update service
After 10 has upgraded just go to
services.msc, find windows update service the list and set it to Automatic delayed start.
Thanks for this info, decided to take the upgrade again today to see if my stuff is now compatible and had this for hours as I slept.

Go to Services (Press Windows+R. This will prompt run dialogue box. In here, type services.msc). Highlight Windows Update Service. Right click. Select Start.
Thanks, i've been upgrading my computers before the july 29 deadline. my "checking updates" was stuck for hours, the windows service stop trick worked!
I had stuck with the same problem for a few days. Then only by chance I changed to another route to upgrade, it checked my pc and then told me that my pc didn’t have enough space on hard drive. Once I knew what was the problem, I made the needed room, and the upgrading went smoothly.
So my suggestion would be: to get “Windows10Upgrade9194.exe” from Microsoft official site, try it instead of “Windows 10 free upgrade.exe”. It worked for me, hope it work for you.
This work for me ...Thank You...
Disconnect from the network, turn on Airplane mode. Once it figures out there is no internet it will move to the next steps
Came to check my secondary machine which usually remains locked but powered on and windows update said your device is up to date last checked 06/08/15 at 23:01, today is 12/08/15. Anyone else seeing this?
I cannot check for updates in Windows 10 9926. I get the error 0x80240438. I already tried disabling my antivirus, didn't help.
