fonts-noto-cjk is a separate package than the main fonts-noto fonts, and 
is extremely big - more than 100MB.

Could you please try two things:

 * Give it more time (or tell how much time you gave it already)
 * Install all but -cjk parts - e.g. using this command:
    aptitude install fonts-noto fonts-noto-cjk-
