Hi Suman,

Windows 8 has a troubleshooter that can help identify any problems. This can also reset the Windows Update app, which can help kickstart the installation.

To do this, click the Start menu, then click the cog icon on the left, which will open up the Settings window. Click ‘Update & Security’ then ‘Troubleshoot’. Click on ‘Windows Update’ then ‘Run the troubleshooter’ and follow the instructions, and click ‘Apply this fix’ if the troubleshooter finds a solution.

This error occurs if there's an issue with your internet connection. First, check to make sure your Windows 8 device is connected to your internet connection. You may need to restart your modem or router if there's an issue.
You can also use Windows 10 to troubleshoot any network problems by right-clicking the network icon in the system tray (in the bottom-right corner of your screen) and selecting ‘Troubleshoot problems’.

You may also see this error message if you're using a VPN. Try disabling the VPN while you download and install the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

If you have antivirus software installed, try disabling that while installing as well, as that may fix the problem. You can then enable it and use it normally once the installation has completed.

You may also get an error message if you don't have enough free disk space to install the Windows 8 Fall Creators Update. You can quickly and easily free up disk space by typing ‘Disk Clean-up’ into the search box on the taskbar, then clicking on ‘Disk Clean-Up’.

In the ‘Drive Selection’ window that appears, choose the drive where Windows 8 is installed. By default this should be your C: drive. Click ‘OK’ then select the tick boxes of the files you want to delete. These should be safe to remove, but remember you can't retrieve them once they're gone. You’ll be told how much space you’ll save. Click ‘OK’ then ‘Delete files’ to remove the files. If you want to create more space, click ‘Clean up system files’.

If you’re still having trouble downloading and installing the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update using the Windows 10 Update app, you should try installing it from a USB drive.
You’ll need a blank DVD or a USB stick to add the installation files, with at least 5GB of spare space.

Download and install the tool, then open it up and agree to the license terms. On the ‘What do you want to do?’ page, select ‘Create installation media for another PC’ then click ‘Next’. Select the language, edition and 32-bit or 64-bit version, then select either ‘USB flash drive’ or ‘ISO file’, depending on whether you’re installing from a USB drive or from a DVD (select ISO file for this).
Once the tool has formatted and created the installation drive, you can restart your PC, boot from the drive and install the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update from scratch.

How to fix Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Media Creation Tool problems
The Media Creation Tool is a handy app made by Microsoft that allows you to install the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update using a USB drive or DVD. However, some people have encountered problems when using it.
If the Media Creation Tool becomes stuck when trying to download the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update files, try closing then restarting the Media Creation Tool app, and instructions. Once the app has downloaded the files, quickly disconnect your PC from the network (either remove the Ethernet cable or turn off your Wi-Fi adaptor).

The installation should continue (without checking the internet for more files) and once it’s complete you can reconnect to the internet. Finally, open up Windows Update (Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update) and click ‘Check for Updates’ to download the final files.

I hope this helps.
