Hi, 

 

Can anyone give me guidance on why there's persistant problems with updates in programmes such as After Effects? I work across 3 windows machines which are newish computers and all encounter the same flakiness and inconsistency when installing updates. 

The main issue is the installer getting stuck, mostly at 99%, which slows down my days when an update is required. I get a dialogue box saying, "Progress is slower than usual. Working on resolving issues" but it takes forver to resolve. I don't think this is due to internet connection, as the workplace internet connection is good and I have no problems with upload and download speeds in other applications and browers.

Some guidance on what takes updates so long to install would be great (as well as why it gets stuck on 99%).

Thanks!
