    Hello Phil,

    Correct. I would assume your GPO settings are overriding the update as well.

    If you wanted to update to 21H1 now, you can test clearing the GPO, restart the computer, and see what Windows Update offers first.
    Thank you! I'll try it. Also, I just checked & discovered that instead of typing 21H1 as the target, I typed 21H2.

    Thank you, will do. But I changed the 180 delay to 30 days, as I'll be leaving in a week & don't want to deal with this before I go.

    Today, update & security offered me 21H1, so I decided to try it. The update seems to have gone easily: it downloaded quickly & installed fairly quickly (not sure how long because I walked away from the computer for about 20 minutes & it had already installed & rebooted). As far as I know, it didn't break anything.

    I do have a question though. I had set my group policy (which I had changed on 5/1/21) as follows:
    Update to Latest Version of Windows 10 using Update Assistant-image.png Update to Latest Version of Windows 10 using Update Assistant-image.png

    I thought that this meant that I wouldn't get it for about 30 days.

    1. When you're on the Semi-Annual Channel, what does the defer box do?
    2. If I had put in a date in the box below, would that defer any update until I removed the date entirely?

    Thank you!

    Great news.

    I like to use this below to defer feature updates instead.

    Thank you. I'll do that from now on. The option to "defer" by putting a number in those boxes seems illlusory.

    Thanks Shawn for a great tutorial and I am now on the latest version and the machine is running so much faster.

    Oh I meant to ask what should I do with preview updates if offered??

    Great news John.

    I usually just let the Cumulative Update Preview updates install.

    Update Assistant always arrives to this :
    Update to Latest Version of Windows 10 using Update Assistant-unsupporteddir.jpg
    Impossible that the directory be unsupported, given that the Windows installation program itself is the specifier of its directory.
    Could it be that the installation program is tripped up instead by the locations (other partitions) of said "files, apps"?
