Windows 10 creators update takes so much time to install

why does the creators update take so much time to install. I have been trying to install for so many times and I end up cancelling it. the download just finishes in about half an hour but for it to install, it takes about 5 hours when it reached 99% it took 4 hours and didn't finish. it did the same thing before as I tried to install 2 times before this one with the same problem and me ending cancelling it.

Note: iam using the update assistant to download and install the creators update.

I didn't bother doing any thing since i did restart the PC so many times and tried installing the update with no solution  so i ignored the update. From about a month ago i used windows defender to fully scan the pc and then found the update installing by itself till it finished without me doing any thing. I dont know know what happened  but iam sure that i didn't have any virus or any malware on the pc when i used windows defender, may be i unintentionally did something that made the update complete the installation. Iam confused too but at least it did install the update and the version was changed to 1703. I don't think it took too long it installed when i restarted the pc in about 30 minutes.
