    2020-01 Cumulative Update

    I tried to install the update but when it was downloading it was stuck at "getting things ready - some percentage" for some minutes (I actually don't know how long a cumulative update takes to download, but it sure doesn't take long to get things ready).

    I even tried to install it through the Update Catalog but it didn't install it with either.

    This happened to me last month as well and I think it was a cumulative update too.

    Is the SoftwareDistribution method my only option of trying to fix the problem? And will I get a truckload of updates to install after that?

    - - - Updated - - -

    I also thought of waiting until next month's Patch Tuesday to see if they roll out these updates again in another cumulative update, but I'm worried about it not working as well.

    You didn't state what your download speed is. Mine is 100Mbps+. The three updates on 01/14/2020 took about 35 minutes to download all three updates. There was some pauses during those downloads. The entire process took 50 minutes until the system had finished restarting.

    I don't even know what speed it is. I'll do a check later.

    Perfectly normal, it's not stuck, you do not have a problem.

    Cumulative updates take a long time maybe an hour or so with a Laptop. Even then after the last Restart a lot of installing goes on for maybe 15 min after that.

    In the particular case of the 2020-01 Cumulative update for .NET Framework, the latter .NET stuff has always taken a long time even way back to Windows XP.

    If you go to Windows Update > Advanced options > Delivery Optimisation > Advanced options, there are more options for limiting the downloading of updates in the background. Depending on whether you want to keep working or get the downloads done as quick as possible, though of course this is subject to your download speed.

    Also does Microsoft reissue these cumulative updates a month later or so?

    Version 1903

    Here's my speed. I also wanna mention that I restarted the service once or twice because I thought it was stuck, so maybe it was corrupted then. Do I need to do the SoftwareDistribution method and will I need to install a bunch of updates after that? I don't wanna fail again.

    Try running the Windows Update trouble-shooter. Mine's just 16Mb/s connection but those 3 updates downloaded in 10 minutes and took 5 minutes to install.

    Hi folks
    My choice in all this is to download the latest from the UUPDUMP site , create the iso via the script and then run the update. That always works for most without problem.

    Note though -- you have to be on W10 pro or above --you can't go this route via W10 HOME.

    I plan to update next month so I don't waste my summer vacation time. I wanna do other things on my laptop.
