This is happening across the board on many platforms. Im betting your SSD is configured as a raid in the BIOS and not the AHCI or its running Samsung drivers.
This update has been more of a fail than success.
Check these two items and check back and Ill see If I can help you navigate an attempt at it anyhow.

If your BIOS is set to AHCI, it doesn't mater whether your running the Samsung or Windows NVME driver they both do the same thing.
I posted earlier on how to download from MCT and running an in place upgrade saving your files and setting.
If your trying for a Clean install, then start the install then open command prompt Shift F10, use diskpart to clean your SSD and then convert it to GPT, continue with the clean install using the USB media your created with MCT..
I just did mine changing from RST RAID drive to first windows natve NVME drier them upgrading that to Samsung NVME 2.2 driver.
Native windows driver sucked real bad, speeds were similar to a 860 Pro, but after Samsung 2.2 driver installed I got back up to the same levels I was getting with the RST drivers. All I gained was being able to use Samsun Magician. Which I updated firmware for both my 960 Pro and 850 Pro. Actual performance is about the same as running the RST driver.

If you want to use the IRST Driver then you would put your BIOS to RAID
If you want to use NVME driver then you would put your BIOS to ACHI
Use disport to Clean your SSD and Convert to GPT
If your going to use the RST driver have it ready to install during the install you'll need to load it to see your SSD

Samsung released WHQL Signed NVMe Drivers a few hours ago...

http://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/download/tools.html

They are still 2.2, but actually signed now

Here try these

Samsung's Site has hit the limit for SSD Downloads, so here:

Samsung NVME 2.2 I downloaded day before yesterday works just fine. not issues no warning.
So you problem is not the Samsung driver.
If your doing an in place upgrade start the upgrade from with in windows and select save your files.
The install will load the windows native drivers if your on NVME driver, or the IRST driver will remain which is the default, You can't mix these two drivers. which you may update to Samsung if you like.
Otherwise it sounds to me like you trying to install a NVME driver on top of the IRST Driver and that is not going to work no mater what version

My bios is in AHCI and got NVME sasmsung driver but with any method the update will fail no matter what.I don't have IRST driver installed.

All good, fresh installation when smooth, AHCI and Samung drivers.

Looks going faster too now.Microsoft is becaming really bad about updates with win 10.

The only thing i can't select power options, got only balanced.

...The only thing i can't select power options, got only balanced.
From Control Panel->All Control Panel Items->Power Options select Windows Mobility Center.
All plans should be selectable from there.

OK but when your notebook came it was running on the RST driver and the OS was installed on the RST driver.
For you to change to the NVME drivers you will have to Use Disk part to clean your SSD and Convert it to GPT
Then Clean install windows 10 using the Install tool that MCT created for you.

NVME driver is not something you have, on install windows installs the native NVME driver, you would then later upgrade that driver to Samsung 2.3 NVME driver is that is what you want.

To upgrade a system set up in RAID with the OS set up on the RST driver you'll have to upgrade in place with out trying to change to a NVME driver.

With all that said there is a way to convert your OS from RST to NVME it is quite involved with many steps. If you search these threads someone explained it a few months back. You can also goggle for the procedure.
I will not attempt to explain it. as all in all if you want to change your system your better off just reinstalling to the system you wish to have.
As always you better have a good SSD Image that is recoverable should you run into issue. Also insure your eSupport folder is backed up somewhere safe.
