  • Hi,

    1. Make Sure that you have enough free disk space (at least 32GB) before installing the update. How to Free Up Disk Space with Disk Cleanup.

    2. Download and install the latest Servicing stack update for Windows 10 version 1809.

    3. Remove all external storage media, such as USB drives and SD cards. Also remove any USB connected devices that you don't need. (e.g. USB Printer, USB Wireless Mouse or Keyboard Receiver, USB Wireless Network Card, etc.).

    4. Temporarily disable or completely uninstall any 3rd party antivirus or security program from your system.

    5. If you have enabled the Developer Mode on your system, then proceed to disable and uninstall the Windows Developer Mode, until you install the update. To do that:

    • Go to Settings -> Update and Security -> For developers -> Select Sideload apps and then click Yes to confirm.
    • Then, navigate to Settings –> Apps -> Manage optional features -> Windows Developer Mode –> click Uninstall and Yes to confirm.
    • Restart your PC and try to update.

    6. Disable Drive Encryption: If you have enabled the device encryption on your system (BitLocker, VeraCrypt), then proceed and decrypt the drive C: before installing the update.

    7. Try to fix the Windows Updates problems by running the Windows Update Troubleshooter. To do that, proceed as follows:

    • Go to Start > Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot > Windows Update.
