    Windows gets stuck on configuring updates for 15 mins

    I have a dual boot Win 10 system, 32 bit and 64 bit. The x64 is my main OS but when updating it gets stuck at the first configuring updates screen for about 15 minutes. Its the same for the 32 bit OS but that gets stuck for about 10 minutes.

    Is there a fix? I have tried system cleanup trying to clean Update files with no effect.

    All my systems took that long on the latest update. I just let it run and it completed OK.
