    My windows update has stuck on "preparing to install updates" at 27% for a few days. Am on the fast ring. How do I 'unstick' it or restart the process ?

Windows Update stuck on 69%
Hi all, Downloaded and installed Win10 yesterday, happy with it so far apart from one issue: my Windows Update has been stuck at 69% since yesterday. Is there any way in which I can cancel the update or troubleshoot? Thanks!
