that with dial-up, the updates will only download whilst you're online.
I used to have dial-up myself and downloaded many things like you, but because of the expense of the line, (in the UK local call ISP's were not free), I had to make a conscious choice to keep online to download any particular thing.
With Windows Updates working in the background it may be that you're not online long enough each session for the download to progress far enough.
But that's just a surmise, as obviously I don't know your own surfing habits.
Can you check what update you are downloading, then goto the Windows Update page and download it manually? You can then stay online exclusively for it and check its progress.
