Troubleshooting

If the Get Windows 10 app remains stuck on Downloading or Working On It for an unusually long period of time; close it then restart your computer, then try upgrading manually.

Option 1:

Download the Media Creation Tool Now

Right click the MediaCreationTool.exe file then click Run as administrator.

Note: How to verify if you downloaded or installed the Windows 10 November Update

How to create a ISO or USB drive.

Select Upgrade this PC now then click Next

Option 2:

Pre-requisite Task

When making significant changes to your computer such as updating the operating system, you should always backup. See links to resources about backing up by clicking the link for the respective version of Windows you are running: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1

then

then

  • Disable (preferrably uninstall) your Antivirus utility before attempting the upgrade.
  • Perform a clean boot, restart then try again.
  • Restart a few times then try again.
  • Disable General USB Devices (example - Smart Card Reader). 
  • If you have any external devices attached to the machine, disconnect them (example, gaming controllers, USB keys, external hard disk, printers, non-essential devices).
  • If you are upgrading using the .ISO file, disconnect from the Internet during setup, if you are connected by LAN (Ethernet) or Wi-Fi, disable both then attempt setup again. 
  • If you are updating through Windows Update, when the download reaches 100% disconnect from the Internet LAN (Ethernet) or Wi-Fi then proceed with the installation.
  • If that does not work, try using the .ISO file to upgrade if possible.
  • If you are connected to a domain, switch to a local account.
  • If you are using a SCSI hard disk, make sure you have drivers available for your storage device on a thumb drive and it is connected. During Windows 10 setup, click the Custom Advanced Option and use the Load Driver command to load the appropriate driver for the SCSI drive. If this does not work and setup still fails, consider switching to a IDE based hard disk.

that didn't work for me
It just takes me to the update page, and it has been downloading for 12 hours.  I have restarted a number of times and end up with the same "progress".  How long should I wait for the download?  I have a medium fast line at 20mbps.

Everytime i click the view download progress, the app just closes. How do i fix this?

Thanks

It shows Windows 10 in Progress but when I click on the : Check your Upgrade Status , it just shows that my Upgrade is reserved.

Also,When I check for Updates through the Control panel, it shows Windows could not search for New Updates.

Error Found 80244019. This is strange, because till the 28th I was able to install the new Updates from Microsoft and everything was running fine.

Thanks!

how about remove check mark on "give me update for other microsoft products" on Control Panel\Windows Update\Change settings? i have the same problem and it works for me.
That's insane. I used the Media Tool because I was impatient, but it only took me like 10-20 minutes to actually download W10. Installation took a total of 3 hours for upgrade, 1 hour for clean install.
