    All my laptops (Dell E6430s) have some weird issue with updates.


    I have loads of Dell E6430s.

    5 were in use and were working fine. The remaining were just in storage.

    Today I needed few of those storage laptops, I turned them on and all of them are giving an issue with Windows Updates and AutoDesk updates.
    Screenshot attached.

    AutoDesk app plainly shows that it's not able to connect to the internet (even though I am and can surf with any browser, already checked proxy settings).
    I though it must be cause of they were turned off for about 5 months, the 5 laptops were in use started giving the same issue.

    All laptops have Windows 10 (1803), April 2018 update installed on them, no disk cloning, on all laptops Windows 10 was clean installed manually.


    Please help.

    Are these being formatted MBR or GPT? The reason im asking is because the newer updates are having problems with some hard drives that are MBR and legacy based formatting.

    They are all MBR formatted.
    The laptops are quite old and they don't support GPT I believe.

    I'm in possession of 2 Dell Latitude E6410 Notebooks and not having issues with the latest Build of Version 1803. I haven't yet installed the Version 1809 Upgrade on them although not having issues with it on a couple other Notebooks and Desktops. But it may be that those Dells were fully up-to-date early this month which may be why I didn't get the same messages you are getting. I do use the MCT/Media Creation Tool and/or the Learn More item on the Updates panel on Settings to get to the Microsoft Update Catalog to get any missing updates.

    Actually, they do. See the Owners Manual, available here:

    You can also choose the Boot List option. The options are:
    •Legacy
    (Default Setting)
    •UEFI

    Check for updates again. Sometimes it takes more than once.

    Some things to consider:
    Your wireless icon on the task bar clearly shows that you are connected. Do you have to set any internet connection properties in Auto Desk that require setting? Proxy Settings?

    Are the versions of Auto Desk on the storage laptops compatible with W10?

    That would be your problem, notebooks can be very fussy about hardware drivers I would suggest you install the latest or known to work drivers for your notebooks, you would probably find this information on the Dell Support Forum.
    As an example, I had to install the latest Intel NIC Card driver to get my Network working again after the 1809 upgrade. it mostly works but once I downloaded and installed the latest driver it worked 100% again
