Windows 10: No update installation even after reboot

    No update installation even after reboot


    I got a couple updates and they indicated they were "waiting for restart". I restarted my computer and was surprised it didn't go through the whole "Configuring Windows Updates, do not turn off your computer" routine. After it was completely rebooted, I went into Settings, and Updates, and found that the downloaded updates are still waiting for me to restart my computer.

    Here are the 2 updates: KB4074595 and KB4058258.

    If restarting doesn't do the trick, then what am I supposed to do?

    You might try (this from simple internet research on string "KB4058258 waiting for restart"

    Fixed - KB4058258 Requires a restart to finish installing - Microsoft Community
    KB4048954 Doesnt complete, always requires restart


    These are slightly older updates now- current build is 16299.248

    Great! In other words, it's still another faulty update, which is what I seem to get each and every time I dare to download the latest updates. I guess I'll have to go back to my previous resolution to not allow any more Windows Updates to install on my computer. It's been nothing but a headache from day one.

    Stopping updates shouldn't be thought of as a solution- just a temporary option.

    If updates (rather than upgrades) repeatedly cause you problems, expect there to be an underlying cause.

    Do you still want to find a solution for your issue, or did you give up? I promise you, that you will soon run into even deeper issues with your computer if this issue does not get resolved in time.

    I might have a few solutions for you so we get the updates going again.

    Please let me know if you still want to continue this journey. It's your choice! :)

    I guess I'm willing to try, but it seems like every single time I download updates and try to install, it's a different problem every time. First, it was that it totally changed all my settings and deleted some of my programs. The next time, I was supposed to just get updates to the version of Win10 I already had, but instead it did a complete replacement of my existing OS with the same version, which caused settings and programs to be messed up once again. The following time, I couldn't connect to the internet for about a week. Now this time, there were 3 downloads: One of them downloaded, but still says it's waiting to download, and the other 2 are still waiting for me to restart, even though I just did that. If they eventually get installed, I have no idea if they'll end up causing more problems or not, but right now they won't even install.

    See, this is why I hesitate to download updates. Each one is supposed to make my computer more secure and make it work better. But each one has been nothing but problems each and every time. So as a result of the latest update, I'm here to try to find a solution for it. If I hadn't downloaded the update, I wouldn't be here with more problems.

    Pepesito had a solution for me in post #4 that I don't even understand how to implement.

    @Delly10

    Here's what you could try:
    !NOTE! When I say Type I mean copy/paste !NOTE!

    1. Open Elevated Command prompt
      1. Look for Command Prompt in Start Menu
      2. Right click on it and select Run As Administrator
      3. Press YES on the UAC prompt
    2. Stop Windows Update Service
      Type the following command:
      Code:
      net stop wuauserv
    3. Delete temporary update files
      1. Type the following command:
      Code:
      explorer C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download
      2. Delete everything in the Download folder that just opened
      3. Close the Explorer window
    4. Re-enable Windows Update Service
      Type the following in Command Prompt:
      Code:
      net start wuauserv
    5. Clean Reboot System
      Type the following command:
      Code:
      shutdown /r /t 0
    6. Try Windows update again
      Go to the usual Windows Update page in settings and try to update


    If this did, not work, then try disabling any AV you have and try again from beginning. After successful update, you can re-enable your AV.

    If this still does not work, then you have a deeper issue on your computer and we need to take a closer look at what it is doing and not doing, before it completely crashes.

    Thank you for this. I'll give it a try, but it might be several days before I can get to it.
