Windows 10: Update to Build 10586 Solved

    Update to Build 10586

    I currently have Windows 10 (Build 10240). For some reason when I attempt to update my system it says that no updates are available. Does anyone know why I can't update to Build 10586?

    The latest Windows Defender updates install, but not the latest build.

    Try do a manual in-place install :

    Use this Tech Bench link and download the Windows 10 iso file:

    scroll down to Select Edition > click the pointer at the right and select Windows 10 > click Confirm.
    click the pointer and select Language > make sure you pick the same language the computer is now running > click Confirm
    select the bit version, 32 or 64-bit. Make sure you select the same bit version as the computer is now running.
    at the bottom, click the pointer next to Save > click Save As > navigate to a folder of your choice > click the chosen folder > click Save
    The iso will start downloading to your chosen folder.
    When it is done, go to that folder > open the folder > right click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup.exe
    Installation will begin.
    It will allow you to keep you files, settings and apps.
    No product key is required.
    Activation will be automatic.

    *** after you are done installing and Win 10 10586 is activated, you can burn the iso file to a bootable media such as DVD or USB. You can use that for future re-install. ***

    Thanks! Any ideas on why the regular Windows Update isn't working though? Is there just a distribution lag or do I have a bigger problem? My system seems to be running fine and I haven't had any update problems until now. I plan to reformat or "recover" or whatever it's called now in the near future so I'm hoping that will clear this up if nothing else.

    I have no answer why you do not get the update.
    There are still a few "who knows" in this new OS.

    That said, the possibility of a compatibility issue looms high.

    I randomly ran across the following web-site that answers my initial question. Interesting that they're doing this... I thought one of the key ideas behind Windows 10 was to eliminate versioning... this seems like it's creating them.
