Windows latest update problem

Kargo 1 Reputation point

I'm currently using 1903 version of windows.
1 ) Do I have to upgrade to the 2004 version? I have 40 GB space left in my C drive with a bunch of software .
2 ) Does this process of update can cause any problem like OS crash ?
3 ) And if I don't update, features like Word, Power Point, Excel, Edge will still be working well or not ? and
4 ) How much does it take to finish the update ?
( I tried last time and it stopped at 44 %, after 3 hours and then I re-started the PC. Now, windows is prompting to do the update continuously)

HELP ME !!!!
Thank You .

    It is often recommended that you use latest version of Windows. V2004 is the current latest version.

    You can try upgrading to V2004 via ISO file, which is one of the best way to upgrade:

    Refer this step-by-step guide:

    The time taken to complete upgrade is not fixed and completely depends upon your system resources.

    Don't worry, if you face some issues with V2004, you can downgrade back to previous version within 10 days after upgrade.
