Unable to update to 10.11.5

Can't understand what's going on, I've been trying to update to 10.11.5 since it was released and it gets to something like 605 MB out of 758 MB and then it stops, as if I've never clicked the update button at all. I'm travelling and at the moment I'm in Egypt with 0.5 Mbps internet, so makes it a real pain everytime the update fails and I start it all over again. Anybody experience a similar problem? Any advice?

Have you tried 'Check for Unfinished Downloads...'

It can be found by clicking on 'Store' in the menu bar.

Tried it just now and it says everything's downloaded even though 10.11.5 hasn't.

Thanks for the tip anyway! Any other reason this could be happening?

If that doesn't do it, here's the direct download link from Apple. I prefer installing my updates this way, alleviates any possible issues from the App store

[doublepost=1463837037][/doublepost]Here's the link to the Combo update for those that need it.

Downloaded the combo, it was stuck verifying for around an hour, but I cancelled, restarted and tried again and it worked perfectly. Thanks for your help :)
