    It is possible that some up[date is not needed and its getting stuck on that
    My advice would be to open windows update in the control panel and then
    uncheck all of the updates except 1. Do that update and then if successful
    move on to the next doing them 1 at a time till you find the offending update

    For those who donít know, there were three updates on plan for Windows 8.1 this year. Each update was going to introduce new features to the operating system, preparing it for Windows Threshold. Windows 8.1 Update 1 landed first, and introduced a hefty amount of updates, but Update 2 didnít.

    In a matter of fact, Update 2 was supposed to include the Start Menu, the one which is available right now in Windows 10. Instead, the update landed with a few bug fixes and a very small amount of options for touchpads. That was it. Many assumed Update 2 would include much more than that, but apparently not.Hereís whatís new:

    Refreshed language packs
    Defence-in-depth security and Schannel hardening
    Support for newer hardware (boot order allowance, SD card improvements, USB debugging)
    Improved Web Services for Devices (WSD) printer support during network switches
    Performance and reliability improvements in clustered virtual machine mission-critical environments
    Improved manageability
    Additional hardware support (devices that have third-party disk encryption software enabled can now be upgraded to Windows 8.1 more easily)
