    Downloading updates freeze at 80% after upgrading to Windows 10

    After upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 downloading the updates freeze at 80%...
    I kept restarting the laptop several times, signing in and out.. and it still at 80% and not moving!

    I solved it after searching... by running CMD as an administrator and using the following commands to restart the Windows Update service.

    Stopping Windows Update...
    net stop wuauserv
    Then starting it again...
    net start wuauserv
    And then recheck for updates again and it will start downloading updates from the beginning.
