This is happend only when the DATA Sectors or Incorrectly downloads and saved on the Harddrive. I will going to explain it little detailed.

Actually when we start the game download from PSN store. The console system check the file integrity and starts the download and Continue downloading the game/s. When downloading games from PSN store they have a good feature that is very helpful to complete the downloads 100% correctly means a fully working game. The feature is that while downloading game/s from PSN store the system checks the downloaded DATA and it’s integrity that is saved on our system’s harddrive correctly. The DATA on internet downloads in Packets (Called DATA Packets). If DATA packets are not correctly downloaded then System’s (Game Console) resend the msg to PSN Server to resend that packet again and saved to Our System (for example PS4, PS3, PS Vita).
When the Bad DATA (Logically Bad Sectors) are saved and created on the harddisk then the system can’t delete that Logically Bad DATA from harddisk. During checking the file Integrity the system found is Bad DATA and recall the PSN server to resend that DATA Packet again to save on the hardrive but failed again and this process continues in circles and never progress further. So the downloading is completely stuck there. It’s stuck on any point when reaches 15%, 37% 59% and on even 99%.
