Windows 7 update error saying reverting changes

Hi. My laptop automatically installed some windows updates and now states "failure configuring windows updates, reverting changes." It has been processing for over 16 hours now! Is this unusual? I manually shut it down this morning and reopened in safe mode and it is doing the same. Can you advise me if this is normal? I need to use my computer for work tomorrow and if it is not working, I might as well stay home Thank you Tom

"Doing the same" doesn't explain enough.

What came up on the screen? Are you able to do anything in Safe Mode?

If one of the changes was an automatic update to Window 10 give it plenty of time to revert to 7. Even then many people have reported a failure to restore their system.
