I did all the steps in the Windows Insider Programme and hit download in Windows Update but now the update has been stuck at 2% for the past few hours. I tried restarting the PC but nothing seems to help. Any suggestions?

@ANDandrei13 The only fix I found was going to C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution and deleting everything after stopping the Windows update service temporarily. I am not sure how safe it is so for anyone trying this, be careful.
