Windows 10 Cumulative Updates are way too slow to download and install

Hi Microsoft,

I can no longer tolerate with the Cumulative Updates because it takes so long to download the security updates.

And I do not know what is the problems.

I don't think it is my ISP is causing the problems.

It could be the downloading time taken at Microsoft Server end in My Country or in the US to update the Windows Operating System.

This is ridiculous as it takes hell lot of time to download and install the security patches.

I think the Windows Operating System is some what Bloated. What is the bottle neck to download the security patches???

It takes me the entire day and night to get this done at my end. I have so many Windows to Update at my end.

I never had any updates issues with Linux. That takes minutes to complete.

Microsoft, come on. Can you please do something. This is way too much for us to handle the situation our end.

Can the Microsoft CEO Look in to the matter?

Hi MRusli,


Welcome to our new Microsoft Q&A Platform.

Sometimes the updates are long and slow, like the one for 1909 if you had a much older version. Except network factors, firewalls, hard drives also could cause the slow updates.


Please refer to the following methods and check if them helps:

  1. Could you tell me which version of your Windows 10? Suggest you updating your windows 10 version to 1909 version by the link below:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

  2. Try to run windows update troubleshooter to check if it helps.

  3. If not helps, you could manually reset windows update components.

  4. Make sure your computer does not have any third-party anti-virus software installed to eliminate the third-party problems.


Besides, if all the methods you had try and still update slowly, you could feedback this situation to Microsoft via Feedback Hub app.


Hope can help you. Have a nice day!


Best Regards,

Kiki

Greetings

from Rijeka/Croatia/South Europe.

Same problem here on Windows 10 - average download speed: 92.5 kbps. Thats a joke.
I´ve started to manualy download the updates from catalog website.

I though it was a problem on the pre-installed Windows 10, so I did a clean install from latest ISO with Media Creation Tool. Same problem here. No results from troubleshooter. Fast SSD. Manual downloads also pretty fast.

Waiting over four hours for WU to download all the Office 2016 updates...
