      What make/model computer are you using? What version of Windows is installed currently? How much memory (RAM) installed on the computer and what type (DDR2, DDR3, etc)? How much used/unused storage is on the HDD or SSD? Are you getting a specific error when attempting to download Windows 10?

      You need to clarify these things to determine how to resolve/explain what is happening.

      I use a MacBook Pro. What version of Windows is installed currently?

      How many gigs of RAM are installed on your computer, and what type?

      How much storage space is left on the HDD or SSD? Is it giving you any errors when trying to download Windows 10?

      It is necessary to clarify what is going on to fix it.

      Ways to fix-
      1. Restart Windows Update Service
      Before going further, you should restart the Windows Update service, as it is responsible for updating the Windows when updates are available or downloaded. Therefore, make sure to check if it is running properly. Below are the steps:-

      Press Windows + R to open Run Window
      Type services.msc and click OK
      Opening Services Window
      Opening Services Window

      Type W on the keyboard to scroll down to Windows update service
      Right the Windows Update Service and click Properties
      Navigating to Service Properties
      Navigating to Service Properties
      Select Automatic from the startup type menu
      Click Apply, then click Start if the service gets stopped
      Restarting Windows Update Service
      Restarting Windows Update Service

      Then click OK and check if the error gets resolved.
      2. Reset Windows Update Registry Keys
      There may likely be a chance of corrupted or irrelevant modified registry keys. Therefore, you need to reset the Windows update registry keys to reset all the values to their default.

      Download the registry file from here to reset the Windows update registry values
      Right-click on it, then click Run
      Running Windows Registry File
      Running Windows Registry File
      Click Yes if asked for the confirmation
      Once done, check if the error is fixed.
      3. Turn OFF Metered Connection
      Metered Connection feature is for those who have a network with a data limit or who want to prevent background downloads. So if the metered connection is turned on, you may not be able to download Windows updates unless you disable the metered connection. Below are the steps:-

      Right-click Start Menu and select Settings
      Go to Network & Internet and select the Ethernet or WIFI from the left pane
      Navigating to Network Properties
      Scroll down a little bit and turn off the Metered Connection if enabled
      Turning Off Metered Connection
      Once done, check if the issue persists.

      Greeting,
      Rachel Gomez
