Cancel queued BIOS update.

Inspiron 5759

Hello, I am having an issue with my laptop. I tried to install a BIOS update through windows update but my battery is failed. When the computer tries to install the BIOS update it sits at the progress screen with a message about charging the battery before I can update the BIOS. It sits at that point for a few seconds then continues booting to windows. With a failed battery I clearly cannot update the BIOS but that is fine, I would however like to know if there is a way to cancel the BIOS update to save myself the few seconds at boot. I am ruining Windows 10 and can get any more detailed system information required. Thanks for any help and have a great day.

I resolved the problem be deleting the software distribution folder in safe mode

and running the built in windows disk cleanup utility and selecting windows update cleanup
