    Hi, you could perhaps be downloading build 1809- about 4Gb. You've not stated your Windows build or shown your Update History.

    Not a direct answer to your question, but in general for Home use e.g.
    Stop Windows 10 Updates Properly and Completely Solved - Windows 10 Forums
    then either of
    Windows Update Minitool or Windows Update Manager (Wumgr) - free

    - these, amongst other things let you scan for and optionally (checkboxes) download and install updates.

    You can also adjust the bandwidth used in Settings, and disable distribution from your PC.
