From time to time, Microsoft delivers a relatively big Windows 10 update called “Cumulative Update” to your computer. Most recent one was 2017-07 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64 (or x86)-based Systems (KB4032188). KB means Knowledge Base used by Microsoft.
Whilst I did not have problem installing this big update for my 32bit (x86 based system) Desktop computer, my ASUS Notebook with x64 based Windows 10 system had an issue of downloading the update. It got stuck at 19% and did not proceed any further. I left it for a day but did not complete downloading the update.
This happened after I checked Windows 10 update manually and started downloading the big update. Although KB number is different, Screen Shot was like the following image.
Once your download gets stuck, it appears there is no way to complete the update and it will affect future updates as well.
To solve this, I did the following;
1. Search for 2017-07 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4032188)
2. Then it shows Microsoft Knowledge based: https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4032188
3. It shows a relevant update for downloading: 2017-07 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1703 for x64-based Systems (KB4032188) Windows 10 Updates 8/1/2017 n/a 848.2 MB
4. As you can see, it’s a quite big file “848.2MB”.
5. Download the file to my local computer.
6. Applied the update manually.
7. However, it did not update the system straight away but saying “updating Windows cache” and again got stuck.
8. All I had to do was shutdown the computer completely and started again – again applied the update – then succeeded.
For you reference, the contents of this big update are as follows;

Thanks for your comment. Much appreciated. Sorry, I cannot post a reply comment as it shows my login id. Microsoft is now releasing “Major Update” twice a year which may cause all sorts of issues. (your printer and other devices stop working etc.) It’s not a bad idea to take full backup before the updating. Harry
