Windows 11 Update Stuck: Fixed For Good
Windows 11 is one of the best versions of Windows in a long time. It comes with various powerful pictures; however, it comes with a few bugs as well. One of the problems that a lot of users face is their updates being stuck. The frustrating part is some updates reach as much as 99% and stay stuck. This article will look at a few ways you can resolve this issue.
Leave Your Computer
One of the ways to fix this problem is to leave your computer while the update is downloading. The updates usually get stuck due to interruptions in internet connectivity or power surges. Plug in your computer and leave it while the updates are downloading. It may happen faster and the update will not get stuck.
If your trouble with updates is not resolved, you can try the update troubleshooter. To do this, go to settings and then click on update & security. Once there, click on troubleshoot and then additional troubleshooters. On the next window, you will see an option called windows update. Click on 'run this troubleshooter.' The troubleshooter will look for any issues and fix them. Once it is fixed, you will need to restart your computer and the update will download and install after that.
Software Distribution Folder
You can also go to 'C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution' and see if the update is still happening. This is the software distribution folder that stores temp files and has all the data needed for updates. Right-click inside this folder and then click on properties. Check the size of the folder to see if the size is increasing. If it is the same, you can follow the below steps:
Switch off your Windows update. To do this, type 'cmd' in the start menu, right-click and select 'run as administrator.' Type the command "net stop wuauserv" and "net stop bits" and this will stop the update.
You must then delete the update files in the distribution folder. Finally, you switch on the updates by running the command prompt again and typing "net start wuauserv" and "net start bits." This should resolve the Windows update issue.
