I didn't shutdown my laptop last night but instead closed it--leaving it on sleep mode. I opened it this morning to find that a Windows update had started and that it was already on 8%. About 4 hours later, it's only on 18℅. I have a Dell Inspiron 15. Is this normal?

Edit: It just jumped to 23% outta nowhere.

Yes, though it falls at the upper fringe of "within normal limits."

 

It sounds like you may have finally received the Anniversary Update, and the major updates can be a production number to install on machines that don't have fast processors or have less memory than might be ideal.

 

I have frequently seen the percentage figures on any given windows update be seemingly stuck and then jump in double-digit amounts when they next change.  (This isn't just under Windows 10, either).

Windows 10 updates can be fairly slow even on really fast machines running ssd.
