    If you click on the start icon, type winver and run it, what do you get?

    I get that and my build is apparently old according to NavyLCDR. How do get the latest build and will that allow me to get 1607?

    I didn't realize all the failed to install updates were the same and then it was finally successful.
    A 'failed install' could be something as simple as you shutting down the PC without realising windows update was half way through downloading the cumulative update. This is recorded as a failure, even though it's one that is of no concern.

    When I do updates I don't shut down. I'm just trying to get 1607 and it fails and doesn't even show in the failed updates. It's the only update I get that's pending.

    No, you ARE on the latest build - the latest build for version 1511 that is. You have all the same security/bug fixes from the latest cumulative update as you would have on 1607. These cumulative updates are issued simultaneously for all three versions of windows 10.

    What you don't have are the latest features that come with 1607, the lack of the Anniversary Update does not make your system any less secure or stable.

    If you go into Settings > Update & security then manually check for updates do you see the upgrade to 1607 listed? It will be called:
    'Features update to Windows 10, version 1607'

    Can you confirm that it says the pending update is the 'Features update to Windows 10, version 1607'? If so, this is a large update, some 3-4GB, and can take a long time (days sometimes) to complete the download. It is the complete install files for a new version of Windows, unlike the other updates that are only patches for the existing version.

    Yes, that is what the update says 'Features update to Windows 10, version 1607'. It apparently downloads but won't install.

    Windows Update does seem to get stuck sometimes trying to install an upgrade like the Anniversary Update (1607). A more reliable way to upgrade to 1607 is to download the install media and do the upgrade yourself. You can use Microsoft's Media Creation Tool to make the install media, either as a .iso file of as a USB. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/...-download.html

    If you make the USB you start the upgrade by running Setup on the USB from within Windows. If you make the .iso file you can mount this by double-clicking on it within File Explorer then run Setup from the virtual drive. Either way, it should take about an hour to upgrade and will need some 20GB or so free space before you start.
