Windows update will not download – stuck at 0% downloading

Windows Server 2008/2012 R2 Virtual Machine VM – Hyper-v

Windows update will not download – stuck at 0% downloading.  Every time I start windows update it won’t download the updates.  Download bar keeps on running and moving but nothing downloads and the percentage stays at 0%.

Ran into this issue several times.

Go to the Ethernet Properties inside the VM having the issues, Click on Configure (You can get to that from Device Manager as well), Under Advanced, disable:

Large Send Offload V2 (IPv4).

Run Windows updates again.

If that doesn’t work restart the Windows VM.

No need to make any changes to the Hyper-v Host.
