Note The System Update Readiness Tool scans for inconsistencies in your computer, while it is being installed. It typically takes less than 15 minutes to run the scan, however, the tool might take significantly longer on some environments. Although the progress bar may appear to stop, the scan is still running and you should not cancel the update.
