    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.
