Seems like every time a new update of Windows 10 is made, new updating problems emerge for users. The latest version of Windows 10 is called the Windows 10 November 2019 update. It was released on November 12 2019. I was one of the people who were fortunate/unfortunate enough to be offered this update early. However I have been having all sorts of problems updating my computer to the Windows 10 November 2010 update (code named 19H2).
Windows 10 November 2019 Update Stuck
What usually happens is that the Windows 10 November 2019 update gets stuck somewhere during the update process. For me, the update was actually being done most of the way, which is a departure from previous times when the update was getting stuck at 82%. What happens this time is the computer attempts to restart itself during the update process. FYI I am using an old HP G62 laptop. Anyway, things usually get stuck during this attempt by the computer to reboot itself.
The result is that I cannot get to the login screen! Even attempting to do so via Safe Mode does not work. Fortunately, I have been able to recover from this calamity. But how? First, here are the cause of the Windows 10 November 2019 update stuck issue;

You need to remove the offending hardware to make the update. In my case, it was the the network card on my laptop. In most instances where you encounter problems updating your PC, the network card is the problems. On my laptop, it’s a simple enough matter to remove it. Once that is done, the update goes through without a hitch. Then I simply pop the card back in and I am good to go. Hope this helps.
