    I get that from time to time, and honestly, my only fix is to try again later, either on a faster connection or another time of day.

    @TairikuOkami screenshots to show me exactly how this works? I ran it and a cmd prompt came up and another pop-up came up with a lot of things to tick/untick.

    Just run it like admin, it will perform some basic cleanup commands.
    Those things to tick is windows cleanup tool, which runs at the end.

    Fix.
    Thanks for the fix. I haven't tried it yet. I live in the UK so I guess in the last executable line in the file I should replace "en-US" with "en-GB"???

    I've run the .bat file and it ran ok'ish - it couldn't find the registry entries and some of the services it tried to start were running or those it tried to stop were not running but I guess you were trying to cover all bases. Anyway, it didn't improve matters - the Upgrade didn't install and thereafter Windows Update couldn't find it!

    Looks like I need to try a re-install but I'm not convinced it will work.

    I'm wondering if the reason the upgrade is longer being offered to me is because it has been withdrawn????

    That command will just open Windows Update window, you can do it manually.
