Wondered what to do next (lol and I honestly can't remember now) but it was either do a restart... is that option available from the symbols on the login screen ? or I just powered off (have the power button configured to shutdown). All was fine though.
    Thank you very much for the tip. I had never thought of changing the button that was set to sleep!
    I did not have to use it with the update because the PC restarted as usual without asking for a password.
    That said, the update took away Touch and Rotation (2-in-1 laptop cannot turn into a tablet anymore).
    Just finally got back touch, after the whole thing got stuck and a forced shut-down reinstalled it. Your button tip saved me!

    Any idea how to get rotation back?

    "Free" Windows 10? My foot! We really should be able to charge Microsoft for all the hours we waste trying to fix the mess every update makes. Grrrrr!

    I posted this in the News thread on the update:

    If stuck on the download, then:
    a. Boot to safe mode
    b. Rename the C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and C:\Windows\Catroot2 folders
    (Use search in C:\Windows\ to find Catroot2)

    Note - you will lose your update history.

    Restart, the update will probably start downloading again. Be prepared for it to pause sometimes.

    or - for a manual download (which I couldn't get to work but people have):

    This worked! I don't know why my attempt to manually download and install from the Windows Catalog errored out, but clicking on the link provided in this softpedia article worked.

    Now, for the results: Update history showed "Security Update (KB3189866)" successful today, but "Cumulative" Update failed (yesterday). During restart, PC rebooted twice.
    At that point: Windows update showed updates pending, "Try Again?" (clicked on it - YES).... Defender update downloaded and installed, but not shown on history after completion.
    > Windows Update now up to date.

    I'm glad I didn't go through all the contortions suggested previously. I am a firm believer that things should work the way they are designed to work and "work-arounds" usually result in lost files or worse. I still don't know why the Windows Standalone Installer didn't work when I downloaded the file from the Catalog. Thankfully, it worked from the link in the above mentioned article.

    Pleased to hear the info was useful.

    I'm afraid I've no idea on the other problem other than perhaps for you to start a new thread on that specific issue if it is still misbehaving.

    Updated one other PC without issues, but another hung on updating. I found that doing a Disc Cleanup followed by clearing the browser cache freed it to continue updating. This is a lot easier than all the contortions others suggested. Apparently Windows Update has been hanging for quite a while. Some PCs are more vulnerable than others. In my case, I have 2 PCs that I built as clones of one another, along with a manufacturer build. One of the clones hung while the other did not. The only thing different is that one PC was shut down at night while the other ran 24/7. The PCs shutdown at night, including the factory built seem to be the ones hanging. I also note that a quick message when first attempting to retry updating said something to the effect that "some" updates could not be installed because the computer was shutdown. Apparently meaning the previous day.

    After 2 days with the stuck at 45% downloading and several re-starts with no success, today it went straight up to 100% and then did the long install. I wonder if Microsoft have done something or whatever?

    I think they realize that pushing an update that included the kitchen sink was not a good idea.

    Same thing happened to me. I rebooted today. Checked for updates. Hit the RETRY button. Updates went immediately to 95% and then started the install.

    I downloaded standalone installer and it worked fine.

    Microsoft are stupid, they can't even release patches right.
