    Sometimes it will show you nothing is happening but it actually is, just give it time and wait it out . While its doing that can you surf the web, if so ? Then you know at least you have the internet and from what you mention you do.

    Turn it off for a test, refresh. Battery saver eliminates background services, one of which is win updates. Ask me how I know

    Do you have the windows firewall on or off?

    Are you using a 3rd party firewall such as Norton Internet Security as the firewall?

    If you are then that was my problem. I turned on the Windows firewall instead and all my updates worked! My store apps had been stuck and I was able to update all 18 of them perfectly as well as the windows update that kept failing.

    Give that a shot!
