Correct...that happened to me earlier this year.

Windows is waiting for you to reboot to complete a Windows update.

One big windows update required a couple reboots.

Reboot, wait 30 min, reboot again, wait 15 min, then try again with TTX.

(or repeat a couple more times with waits in between....if you have a slow internet connection, some updates take a whole day or overnight)
