Restart Windows Update if it gets stuck

It's no secret that many times the fail to install updates released by Microsoft. In most cases the problem comes from the Windows Update service. Many times a restart of the service can solve the problem, and the update installation process can continue.

This can be done in a number of ways, including from your system's list of services (search for Services () στο μενού Έναρξης και πατήστε Enter, βρείτε το Windows Update και επιλέξτε την επιλογή Restart), αλλά υπάρχει και ένας πολύ πιο εύκολος τρόπος από την γραμμή εντολών (Command Prompt) ή το PowerShell.Windows Update

Below we will see two different commands. To run them you will need to open Command Prompt or PowerShell with administrator rights. (In the search type cmd or powershell and when it appears που σας ενδιαφέρει, δεξί κλικ πάνω του και “άνοιγμα σαν ")

First of all, we will stop the Windows Update service: copy and paste the following command:

net stop wuauerv

If you restart your computer, Windows Update will start automatically. Otherwise, you can use the following command to start the service:

net start wuauserv

The above commands are only for restarting the Windows Update service, and not for resetting, as a reset is a much more complex process that includes many other commands.

We know that a simple reboot of Windows Update often helps Windows 10 updates that are stuck during the download process. The above solution does not work in 100 percent of cases.
In fact, it's proven that sometimes it does not work when they try to install cumulative updates, and in that case the only thing we can do is wait for Microsoft to provide a solution.
