Windows 10: Issues with installation of Windows updates

    Issues with installation of Windows updates


    My computer keeps going through a WIndows update installation. It has been happening daily for the last couple of weeks. The installation will get to 95% complete and sit there for a while. Next thing I know, the computer is restoring a previous version of windows. This hasn't been too big of a deal, however, the installation takes a while and so does reverting to an older version which makes my computer unusable for a couple of hours. I have recently removed the automatic install from WIndows update to have them ask first. That should stop the waiting for nothing but I would like to get this issue resolved.

    Looking through my update history, it shows everything as being successfully installed, however, the most recent update is from 11/12 and I know the update has been running every night for the last few nights. Any insight would be appreciated. Below are some pictures of what I am seeing. If more information is needed, just ask and I will provide.

    Hi, you can try downloading the update manually, and then installing it.
    KB3189866 stuck at 45% or 95%? Install it manually instead - gHacks Tech News

    Try after a clean boot, disconnect all unnecessary devices.

    Any reason why you're still using build 1511? 1607's been out since early August.

    You could try inspecting the Windows update logs.
    Windows Update logs are now generated using ETW (Event Tracing for Windows).
    Please run the Get-WindowsUpdateLog PowerShell command to convert ETW traces into a readable WindowsUpdate.log.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I am not very computer savvy so not sure why my build is older. I always have WIndows update set to automatic to keep me recent and protected. I tried to download the update and run it manually, however, when I run it I get an error message that says, "Windows Update Standalone Installer The update is not applicable to your computer."

    Here's how to get 1607- or the current build in general:

    Personally I find a DVD the easiest, then I keep it as a bootable medium as it can be used for several recovery purposes.

    I don't know what you downloaded or from where: the language and 'bitness' (32 or 64 bits) have to match.

    There are plenty of threads where people reported issues with the upgrade. I recommend first using disk imaging to create a backup in case anything goes wrong- and it can- e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + large enough external storage (say at least twice the size of the data you're going to back up).
