    Have you ensured you disconnected all USB devices except for the mouse.

    also, did you ensure you updated all drivers to the latest?

    anytime man, I'll be with you until you get this done. There are a few ways we can do this after you've done the above things. if it didn't work, then you can:

    a) use the manual update tool

    b) create a Windows 10 USB Installer Flash Disk but don't boot off it, instead, while in Windows, run setup.exe and choose to upgrade

    Don't forget to disable your AV as well.
