This has helped me a few times.

Keep in mind that there is probably hundreds of updates since your PC was unboxed. When I do a clean install or factory reset, I kick of the search prior to bed time and in the morning they are there. I click install and leave. When I get back they are installed. It will take some time.

If someone else knows a trick, I'm sure you will hear from them as well.

Windows update stuck on 0%
Just as the title says. It is stuck on 0%. I waited for 30 minutes but no changes. Except for totally random BSOD caused by ntoskrnl.exe (SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED). One thing which I noticed was that it still wanted me to install updates while shutting down my computer.
