    Update does not seem to be working


    Did a clean install a couple weeks ago (Win 10 Pro 64bit v1709, build 16299.309). However, every time I check for updates I get 'you are up to date'. However, my wife's 10 Pro (same version and build) has updated several time since December and is currently installing KB4089848. The only updates I have are KB890830 and KB4088776.

    Any ideas why I'm not getting updates?

    Visit this web page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10164/fix-windows-update-errors, where you can download the Windows Update troubleshooter (wu170509.diagcab). Run that and report the results back here. If you're lucky, it will fix what apparently ails your Win10 installation. If not, there are lots of other things to try.

    It said that the Windows Store App might be corrupted and fixed it. Nothing about Update.

    When I have difficulties I go to Settings, Update & Security then scroll the right side down to Learn More. Links there will allow downloading an Offline Installer of the latest build which now is 16299.334. I did have an issue in February where the Windows Update picked up the Delta version of that installer and wouldn't install so I got the Offline and fixed it. The Delta version is for those computers that are otherwise fully up-to-date and is a bit smaller in the download.

    Try running Windows Update MiniTool (WUMT). I find it often works, and clears out update issues, even when Windows Update is itself misbehaving.

    I didn't see a selection for an offline installer for .334.

    Offline installer from MS Update Catalog on this page near bottom, under 'How to get this update' - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4089848

    edit; corrected link to complete Win10 update history page

    Sometimes one has to look for the KB number associated with the build, in this case it would be KB4089848.

    Manually ran the update tool and I'm now at .334. Will check the update status regularly.

    Thanks, everyone, for your help.
