installing. What is the problem and how do I fix it (either to escape from the automatic install or to complete the installation)?

Now run the Fixit and choose the Default mode.
Restart once it's done
and see if the system can connect to the update servers.
If it can not, then run the Fixit again and choose the Aggressive mode.
Restart when it's finished running and check for updates.
I suggest before shutting down and installing any updates, disconnect from the Internet first.

The best part is that repairing registry errors can also dramatically improve system speed and performance.

- While holding CTRL-Shift on your keyboard, hit ENTER.
- You will be prompted with a permission dialog box.
- Click Yes.
