read 'installing updates'. now reads 'updating apps'. how long should this take?.

Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.
It depends how many updates / apps there are. Does it show the progress status or list of apps? It could take 10 to 30 minutes. Please wait and check. Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Does not show progress or list of apps.

Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.
OK, wait about 20 more minutes or until it's done updating, then let me know. Thank you.

seems ok now. why did it take so long.do i have an internet problem?

Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 1 year ago.
Great. No, your internet should not have any problem. For first time setup, there are usually many new updates, so it takes long; in the future, each update would install individually each time, so it should be faster. If you need help with anything else, please come back any time. Also, can you please take a moment to rate my service by clicking on a face icon / service option below, then click on Submit when it shows up. Thank you very much for your patience
