What should I do? It's telling me not to shut down. And I'm afraid if I do, it might damage the Windows.
I haven't created the Recovery Dics either. I was gonna do that after restarting the laptop.

There's not much else to do at this point except for power the computer off and restart it.
Worst case scenario, if Windows Update can't recover from the failed batch of updates, you can always restore the system without recovery disks. Simply holt Alt and keep tapping F10 at the Acer logo that appears when you first turn the laptop on, and stop when the Acer logo disappears. If 'Windows is loading files' appears at the bottom of the screen, you've started the restoration process successfully.
In most cases, though, Windows can recover from hung updates like this without issue.
