    That is a hard question to answer without some info.

    How fast is your internet download speed and are you connected to router by wire or wireless.

    This doc outlines the size of files for various upgrades. Looks like at most 200 MB.

    Slow update


    Well, after several attempts it did not work. Task bar showed no activity.
    Result I did a complete online repair of Office. Outcome issue resolved.
    No idea what the problem was but a least a good outcome

    Glad you're fixed. A side benefit to the Online Repair is you should have picked up some space back. I hadn't done one for a while, and I did and got back almost 1GB of space. It cleans up all the previous temp files from updates. Not sure that's documented anywhere, I just noticed the difference right after I had done it. Just throwing that in.

    I also faced what chuxnz faced. 2 hrs wasted. When I searched I found this thread. I also did repair online. It used nearly one gb Data. Update done tp 11126.20266. But no recovery of space.

    Ivgandhi, I notice you are on older version 1803 and not an Insider, therefore would likely not have been receiving regular updates. When you installed the latest version of Office it added to your existing rather than replace a number of previous additions, therefore adding to the size of Office rather than subtracting.

    Still I had update problem as you had.
    My opinion is Microsoft has to look after this problem so that in future these problems like indefinite downloading and that leading to necessity of online repair which further consumes time and data
