Whenever I start downloading Minecraft Launcher and it is 99% done, it restarts automatically. I have tried downloading it three times, each time the same thing happened.

Here what is written in nativelog:

Native Launcher Version: 34

Any idea why this is happening and how I might prevent this?
I have read that slow net is also causing problem, My net speed is 2 mbps.
I have visited every site, but have found nothing useful :(

I have captured another error, Is this the problem?

    It tries to update the launcher and fails because of a timeout. Do you have a very slow internet connection? If not, it could be a problem with a firewall or similar. – Fabian Röling Jul 18 '17 at 8:13

    Can you then please write something about my guess of slow internet as an answer to your own question and accept that? That way it doesn't stay an open question forever. – Fabian Röling Jul 18 '17 at 10:03
  • @Fabian I have answered but now I can am only able accept after 2 days. – sudias Jul 18 '17 at 10:58

This error is potentially caused by a slow network download speed.

Start downloading the new version, lock your PC and enjoy some tea or go out for a walk (just wait it out). After around 1 hour (considering that you have slow network speed), it should be completed; if not just keep waiting!

    The size for a regular launcher plus assets (no saves, no versions but with game files) is approx 500mb, for me (hovering at like 100mb/s) it takes a matter of seconds, but since you are saying you have a download speed of 2mb/s it comes down to 250 sec or 5min (approx), taking into consideration of the speed of Mojang servers and transmission delays lets say your regular download speed drops to 100kb/s it would take 5000 sec or 83 min. If it were to take exactly 1 hour, your relative download speed would be 175k/s (approx). Your browsing speed is different from your download speed! – Kingsley Zhong Jul 18 '17 at 17:28
