    Windows 10

    Same update showing available despite having installed it already


    Never had this before
    I go to update to latest build. It tells me to install it. It installs. But when I come back to the update after the reboot it still says update available and asks me to install again. I have installed it twice and same thing keeps happening

    Hi, there should be log files where you can try to find out what went wrong, should that be necessary.

    There are basic recommendations here as to some precautions to take:
    Upgrade to Windows 10 Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials
    - disable or uninstall your AV, disconnect all unnecessary peripherals esp. wireless.

    Check your PC: Some elementary checks (worthwhile doing occasionally)
    1. Your disk: Download and run Hard Disk Sentinel (trial)
    2. Your file system:

    From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
    How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.

    3. From an admin command prompt run
    SFC /SCANNOW
    and post the summary result.

    Please post a screenshot of your partitions:
    Windows key + X, click Disk Management
    to post a screenshot please use the Insert Image icon above your post to the left of the video icon

    Some people find it necessary to do an in-place upgrade repair install of their existing Windows version to be able to upgrade.

    Some people find it helpful to manually upgrade: this is my preference as it's under my control.
    a. Download the iso
    b. Create Win 10 bootable medium
    c. Create or update your disk image of your existing system (we strongly advise people use disk imaging so they can restore their system without technical help even if the disk fails or is encrypted with ransomware).
    d. Attempt the upgrade.

    Because the iso is downloaded once, multiple attempts are possible without repeating the download.
    This also avoids difficulties with Windows update.
