    Can't upgrade 1803 to 1903 and 1909

    I've had this issue for some time now in regards to updating. Currently, I'm running Win 10 Pro 64 bit; Version 1803 Build 17134.1006. The status for updating is listed as Pending download but when I click the Fix issue button Windows 10 Update checks my PC and I get the following: This PC can;t run Windows 10 because We couldn't update the System Reserved partition. Not exactly sure how to fix this. Looking in Disk Management, the System Reserved partition shows Healthy. Windows is on its own SSD drive. So, the partitioning on the drive was setup during the install. Thanks

    How complex is your build, lots and lots of app or is it more straight forward, windows, couple of browsers and a productivity suite?

    Quick question: I assume I'm trying to increase the size of the System Reserve partition, yes? Below is my current C drive and partitions on my SSD. I assume the Windows install created the Recovery Partition but there isn't any data in it. It shows 100% free and doesn't even have a file system.

    There is insufficient free space.
    It may be able to be fixed by temporarily removing Windows files that are restored during the upgrade.
    It may be able to be fixed by altering the partition size.

    When available please update the progress with post #3.

    For disk management and minitool see if you can post full images.
