Things tried:
1.  Installing directly from Adobe's website after pausing Antivirus and Firewall (Internet connection is stable)
2. Making sure that JS is activated in the browser and installing again
3.  Running the installer in compatibility mode with administrator rights

4. Running Adobe Cleaner (No installation found), deleting the folder C:\\Users\<username>\AppData\Adobe manually and then restarting the computer and installing Reader again.

Hello,

 

I went through the same exact problem. My solution was to preform an inplace upgrade. Basically re-installing Windows 11. The problem may have occured when installing windows for the first time so doing this may fix your problem. 

 

Heres the link to the tutorial I followed:

If that doesnt work, possibly a VPN or security app may be halting the download process. Unsure about that but worth exploring.

 

Cheers
