    Surface 3 unable to get ver 1803

    Microsoft Surface 3, 64-bit 4 GB Ram.
    Disk space : 79.3 GB free of 115 GB
    Browser : IE11
    OS : Win 10 Home, ver 1709 Build 16299.431

    All my laptops were able to receive version 1803 on the very same day it was released. But, so far, my Surface 3 is not getting it from WU.
    I m not exactly complaining as I can always go to MS Update Catalog to get it, if I want to.
    I just wonder why 1803 is not offered to my Surface 3. There is no registry "hack" done on this tablet. In fact, I seldom use it.

    P.S. I did run the Update Troubleshooting. Nothing fixed.

    I would use the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant if you wanted to upgrade to 1803. It may be that there are pending updates that Windows Update is not downloading before 1803.
