It seems like some users including myself is having problems downloading the last W10 cumulative update KB3189866. Mine has been stuck at 45% for 2 days. I finally installed the update by downloading the update from the Microsoft Update Catalog web page. You will have to use IE for the download. Here is the link to the update if you are having issues.http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Search.aspx?q=KB3189866. It worked for me.

Just read about this issue this morning Daniel. Seems that for some users, if left running, the update will eventually install. For many though, as is obviously the case with you, it will just hang indefinitely.

Here are links to download the standalone update direct (should work in any browser):

32-bit version KB3189866 update

64-bit version KB3189866 update

Microsoft really needs to fix these constant issues with Win10 updates.

Good catch Daniel, thanks for sharing.

My Wife's PC updated without any issues where as mine hung at 45%. Their is still no fix for my webcam. You are right Microsoft is in need of a Win update fix of their own.
Jim, do You have any idea on how long previous versions of W10 will be supported?

What do you mean by "previous versions" Daniel?

Hi Jim
I am running W10 Version 1607 Build 14393.187 on two PC's. I have one that is running W10 Version 1511 Build 10586.494. I was just wondering, you know how old men like to let their thoughts get out of hand, if their was or is a support life cycle for the different versions of W10.

Ah, I see. No, not as far as I am aware Daniel. Now that updates are enforced, there is really no distinction between builds and life cycle support - it's just all Windows 10.
