Steam frozen updating
Then i went looking and I may have found a solution to the issue but would need others who have the issue to confirm.
Essentially after looking for any dota 2 files that could be conflicting I decided to remove the 571-573 files from the depotcache folder in my steam folder.
Open the depocache folder and you will see a few files 571_######.manifest to 573_######.manifest.
These files are related to Dota 2 and can cause the download to stall.
I know this issue is reasonably common and has been around for quite a while and think it would help others to have another post added for this issue.
