update failed to complete

For some reason my Norton's update hangs on the last file to process and fails to compete.  I even reinstalled to no avail.  (Win-10 1803, Norton's Security). Will wait until tomorrow, afternoon thunderstorm coming in!!!!  Lightening!

That happens from time to time but if you wait long enough the updates usually complete.  Sometimes a system restart can get things working.

Might be a good idea to shut your machine down until after the storms pass.  Take care!

Do you use Malwarebytes premium by chance?
There’s a bug with MB’s exploit protection preventing installs from completing. For me I’ve noticed whenever programs update & they’re uninstalled first the install of the new version doesn’t start. I have to manually reinstall.

Hey, in Florida one usually has little time to react to storms :)   I just had time to turn it off when the power glitched.

I used the free version but it has changed so maybe I'll turn it off and see if that works, thanks.

My last update to the free MBAM version re enabled the Premium trial. I just disabled again.
