    10159 is now up and running. Further research within MS reveals that this problem can be caused by not being activated. I checked, the build is activated? Additionally, it was suggested to add another MS account, even to re-enter your own to clear up this problem. I did exactly that and the problem has now gone away. "I am set to receive insider builds" even thought I just updated to 10159 while the error was still there.

    I had a message about needing to sign in with my Microsoft account. I did not do this as I prefer to use a local account.
    Now when I run 'Check for updates' I get a pop up with:

    "Get Insider builds
    Insider build settings needs attention."

    Looking, I have found that Windows is not activated. When I try to activate I get a message in red saying:

    "Windows can't activate. Try again later."

    How do I get Windows 10 to activate?

    Well I have succeeded in doing a manual activation by entering "slui 4"

    Now when I run 'Check for Updates' I get a disappearing pop up with:

    "Get Insider Builds
    Insider build settings need attention"

    If I select 'Fix me' under 'Get Insider Builds" it wants me to log on with an MS account.
    I have an MS account but I don't want to use this for normal log on.

    How do I get any upgrades?
