Windows 10: Can't update windows

    Can't update windows

    Hi, I'm trying to do windows update on a pc that has been offline in some time. At first a normal update process began and then the pc needed a restart. After the restart the windows version is not fully updated and windows shows that more updates are available (see screenshot) but no update seems to happen.
    It says a restart has been scheduled but I have manually restarted 10+ times now and the same screen always appears in windows update telling me the same update is needed.
    Any ideas?

    Hello silverz, :)

    Did you click on the "Restart now" button in your screenshot?

    If so, then you might see if resetting Windows Update may help.

    I had exactly the same problem, ran this upgrade (1511) through Media Creation Tool (I used "Upgrade this PC" option) and that sorted out the problem.
