Unable to apply update KB2769166


  • When I am trying to apply the KB2769166 update it keeps hanging at 45% of the download.  I have gone to the %windir%\SoftwareDistribution\DataStore and Download directories an cleared them a few times already.  realizing that this is a .Net 3.5 security update could it be an issue with the source?  I know I had to specify an alternate source when I applied the .Net 3.5 features on this server.

  • Try: DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    (as per: )

  • Well that didn't work.  I ran the DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and that completed sucessfully.  I then ran Windows Update again and it let it run for 3 hours.  It still stopped at 45% of the download and would not go any further.

  • I discovered a solution to install KB2769166:

    - I installed WSUS on another server

    - I used the other server as update source and more updates were displayed than with online update. These updates seem to be prerequisites for 2769166.

    - After i installed the other updates i was able to download and install KB2769166.

    However the next update that is stuck at 45% during download is KB2789650. But this one is listed in MS Download Center ;)
