There are a few reasons why your Windows 11 update might not be downloading. Here are some things you can check:
Make sure you have enough free space. Windows 11 updates require at least 16 GB of free space on your hard drive. You can check how much free space you have by going to Settings > System > Storage.
Check your internet connection. Make sure you have a stable internet connection with a good download speed. You can run a speed test to check your internet connection.
Temporarily disable your antivirus software. Sometimes, antivirus software can interfere with Windows updates. You can temporarily disable your antivirus software to see if that fixes the problem.
Run the Windows Update troubleshooter. The Windows Update troubleshooter can help identify and fix problems that are preventing Windows updates from downloading. To run the troubleshooter, go to Settings > System > Troubleshoot > Other troubleshooters and select “Windows Update”.
Reset the Windows Update components. If the troubleshooter doesn’t fix the problem, you can try resetting the Windows Update components. This will delete all the temporary files and settings related to Windows Update. To reset the Windows Update components, follow these steps:
Open the Run dialog box by pressing Windows key + R.
Type cmd and press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to open Command Prompt as administrator.
In the Command Prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
net stop bits
net stop wuauserv
net stop cryptsvc
Rename the SoftwareDistribution and Catroot2 folders:
Ren %SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
Ren %SystemRoot%\System32\catroot2 catroot2.old
Restart your computer.
Once your computer restarts, open Command Prompt as administrator again and type the following commands:
net start bits
net start wuauserv
net start cryptsvc
Check if Windows 11 update is now downloading.
