This is a difficult puzzle and took about 2 hours to complete.
The elimination method to proceed logically with this puzzle requires too much imagination.

I agree with Giromaka, difficult puzzle but a good image on completion.

I completely disagree. It was simple and took just over 30 minutes. No imagination required. It was all solvable with logic.

I think you are right. This is because the puzzle's Difficulty rating of 3 stars proves it.
So I decided to try it one more time.
Now, after 15 minutes, the progress has been blocked again. I cry...
If you have time, I would appreciate it if you could tell me how to proceed in this situation...

Column 1 you can deduce where 5 of the 8 go. This leads to where the 8 in column 2 goes. Row 13 & 14, you can deduce where the 11s cannot go.
Row 39, you can deduce which of the 2s you already have. This leads to you knowing which 2 you have in row 40.

As a general rule, whenever you get stuck, look for high value numbers on the edges. If you imagine that that set goes in a particular place, it leads to an anomaly and you can eliminate places where it can't go. In this example, the 8 in Column 1, you use this technique.

Best of luck. I'm sure you will crack it soon enough.
