    My older laptop that I have not had turned on for months is doing an update.
    It is not this one you have listed. It does say 02-2018, but the version is 1607 and the other number is KB4074590.
    This machine may not be powerful enough to hold some of the stuff they did recently.
    It got to 53% and has been there for an hour now. I have 86mbs download speed.

    Update: 5 hours stuck on 53% progress. I opened my Task Manager and checked the performance. The processor was at half capacity, the drive went from zero to 100% and in between, the Wi-Fi got a tiny spike every not and then with 100kb.
    Once before I turned one of my machines off and that was a chore to get it straightened out.

    Just now the progress bar jumped from 53% to 91%. Yeah.

    This is the MOST trouble I have had with Windows 10 update.
    This KB4074588 kept telling me it was not installed. I finally went to the website and downloaded the standalone version of it and installed manually.
    It still shows up in the Programs and Features as installed but there is not date for it.
    Windows update still shows it is not installed.
    The website says this is a known issue and goes on to explain it.
    After 11 tries I am giving up.

    This one appears to cause problems just like the last one.
    Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4090913 Fails to Install, Causes Other Issues

    I finally had to choose a date and time for my laptop to restart to make it quit trying every day, and fail once again on the update last month.

    I'm not denying your problems but I did not experience any issues with KB4090913 with either my Desktop PC or my wife's laptop.

    You said that already.
    I downloaded the stand alone of each of them, Feb and March, and they both show up in the list of updates but do not have a date they were installed. Windows again goes out and tries again and again to install. This is a know issue according to their own website.
    I sent them feedback about this.

    It may be a known issue but it's not affecting all PCs.

    Well, my problems just keep coming.
    First I downloaded and installed the latest release on my desktop and had zero problems.

    Then I tried it on my laptop that keeps telling me that the last 2 releases failed. yep, it failed also. Then I did some reading and it showed to uninstall the updates back to the December release and then install the latest one. Tried that with the same results. It shows in Programs and Features with the name but not a date installed.

    Then I tried it on my older Intel Pentium dual core laptop. Last time it took a couple of times but it did install it. Not this time. This time it downloaded and started the install process. About 3 minutes into it and my screen went black. I let it run for over 2 hours like that before pressing the power button to turn it off. When I turned it back on a window popped up and said it was going into Automatic Recovery mode. 2-1/2 hours later it said it failed. I tried reinstalling windows 10 from a media disc I had created but it failed. Said it could not do that since the pc did not boot windows from the hard drive.
    I then tried an old Recovery disc I had made in 2011 after I had the machine for a couple of months. It said it found errors on the disc and would repair them. 19 hours later it said to exit to windows 10. Then it said it failed.
    Then I chose to reimage the machine from the backup discs I made in 2011. That was a success.
    Do you know how many updates in 7 years. Holey Moley. 210 updates. When those finished and I checked again it now needed 31 updates. Then those updates needed 17 updates. Then again 32 updates. YEAH, it finished and no updates.
    This whole process took nearly 3 days to complete. Mercy. I am leaving it on Windows 7 for now

    I also read that the April release is supposed to fix all of my problems. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I had the same issue -KB4088776- on 2 win10 machines that would fail the update - I contacted MS (failed update) support is free - What they did was download (link to my PC) win10 "media" -when Complete (right click -open with file explorer) Select setup - it will reload win10 keeping everything - when you reboot after that -run the window update and it will complete.

    I called about one machine and then did the same fix on the other myself.

    GO to MS Support and get your issue resolved.

    Thank you very much !

    I just finished the process. I did use the Media disc that I had created when we first installed Win 10. I opened File Explorer and double clicked on Setup. It had the 2 boxes already checked to keep all Apps and personal files.
    All updates are installed now.

    Windows wanted to install three updates on my laptop computer plus MS Office updates (where I had Office 2007 installed). I deleted Office 2007 completely -- I use Libre Office on the laptop. I checked again for updates and the MS Office updates had disappeared. Long story shortened, I had to restart the computer after each of the remaining three updates.
