    Updates frozen

    In the update screen (settings-update & security) it shows the following updates are available, and further down the page it shows Downloading Updates 0%. this has been the same figure for about 8 hours and no advance. Not doing any other work on the laptop, so all resources are available.

    These are the updates numbers: (mainly for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems)

    (KB3182373),(KB3185614),(KB3115462),(KB2597974),(KB3161102), (KB3181403),(KB3150513),(KB3118300)

    What can be done to either enforce the updates or get rid of them!

    Hi, you will see an extended discussion in this thread (including what I found worked for me after about the 3rd attempt) for the latest several 100 Mb build 1607 update which many found hung.
    Cumulative Update KB3189866 Windows 10 build 14393.187 - Windows 10 Forums

    There are some ideas there which should also be relevant to you.. Hope you find one that works.

    There are no ideas on that link, just people whining about how large it is. Is the link correct. What worked fro you?

    Can it be downloaded direct?

    See mine at #137. There are others if you read on. Sorry it's long but otherwise I have to read it for you... and I've read more for you- manual link see #160.

    There are other thoughts on making it work if you read on as I recall.

    Ok, thanks for that. What do I rename the catroot folders to?

    Anything you like... you can just delete the contents.. just renaming them is a bit more cautious.. unnecessary really. Then come back & delete them.

    You may find it takes a couple of attempts.. at least it did on the very large update.
