Scenario 2: Unable to update Windows 10 to v1809. Freezing at boot after reboot.

I am not being able to update my windows 10 device. After all the update files downloaded, I restarted the system (2 times). But it freezes at a boot screen like the image. It doesn’t boot up. Even the keyboard isn’t working at this time. And after I force shutdown using button and restart again, it takes too long to restart. And everything is back to normal like previous. Am I doing something wrong here? Is it only me facing this issue? How to solve this or update my system? Someone, please help me.
