Windows 10: First Major Update for Windows 10 Available
Thank you for your response.
To clarify, I have been running Windows 10 Pro since August and have successfully received numerous UPDATES.
Today, I received notification of the first UPGRADE to the August issuance of Windows 10.
Upgrading the Lenovo, I received the failed message for the UPGRADE.
I thought the Media Creation tool was specific to only upgrading to Windows 10 from Windows 7, 8, etc.
Since I already have Windows 10 installed and running, I only want the UPGRADE to the new higher level of OS.
This is why I question whether to use the Media Creation Tool.
It is now three hours from when I posted the above.
Thanks to the procedure given to me in this thread, I downloaded the MCT and installed the upgrade successfully. The laptop is now running properly.
Thanks for your help!

The recovery 8GB partion contains the factory recovery image...
I would copy the contains of that partition to a USB and then recover the 8GB of space into C:

It's ok to use the MCT on machines on which you already got W10, it works just fine.
Media Creation Tool (which has also been updated) also works for upgrading Windows 10 build 10240 to build 10586.

That 32GB is the SSD.
I thought I'd use that until I got able to install Office 365 2016 again, but it was a total mess! So was Outlook.com, which is the reason I reinstalled Office 2013. Sometimes "native" programs are not the best at all.

Good for you, Debbie!
I did a clean install on my desktop with the MCT, but I decided to see if Lappy 17 would update correctly, since I don't have much of anything on her yet. So far, so good; downloading updates is at 50%. If things go wrong, I'll just use the MCT and get her back on track.
HEY Microsoft, if you're listening....I only had 1 out of 4 PCs that were able to update to the latest version (10586) through the Windows Update process; all others had to be done with the MCT. If you were a professional baseball player you probably would be released from the team for such a low batting average.
I don't get it, how can there be so many problems updating to a higher version. It's like they took and modified the process after they gave it to the Windows Insiders. 3 of the 4 machines are less than a year old so there is no saying that I had outdated components. The last PC is 2 1/2 to 3 years old.
The Media Creation Tool is for whatever you need to do, Carbuff. Since you already have Windows 10 up and running, you can use the MCT to upgrade or do a clean install, whichever you choose.
