If you have 2 network cards (maybe wifi even) try to disable the ones that can't get to the internet anyway. Then try it again.
If not, do you have any other firewall/antivirus types of software? Disable them and try again. You can enable them afterwards.

Thanks for the response.  
It turned out that Windows update server was handling windows updates and was causing the connection to WIndows Update to get required downloads to fail.  Removed from Windows Update server and it installed without a problem.
Thanks for the help.

i found this and it help me

I was getting the ‘stopping at 65.8%’ error. After a bit of digging, found I had to change the registry key value for ‘UseWUServer’ from 1 to 0. More specifically, I had to *create* this key (as a DWORD). Also had to reboot. Went back to the features and it installed first time.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/POLICIES/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS/WINDOWSUPDATE/AU

I had removed the station from being updated by WSUS by changing the OU so that the GPO didn't set it to use WSUS and that worked.
However, this solution is easier and quicker to accomplish.

Thanks for the response.
