When I went to the command prompt, it still says "Version 10.0.10240"

Hi Pat(rick) :)

This is probably because the command prompt is still on that version (cmd.exe, v10.0.10240). To see your current Windows 10 version number, press on the Win Key + R keys and enter winver then press on Enter. It'll be displayed in the window that will pop up.

Also, see the ars technica article entitled, Windows 10 November Update:  features fixes and enterprise readiness.  It appears that there are some oddities about numbering based on the first paragraph.

Are you sure that you installed the Treshold 2 update (also known as the November Update)?

I was clicking on Check Update, it was downloading Windows 10 version 1511 build 105__ (i forgot exactly the build number but it was in the 105__). Then it was installing, but I fell asleep during the installation :S

 

I don't remember seeing Treshold 2

Go back in your Windows Update panel and click on Check for updates. See if the update is "found" again.

I check it again and it found nothing :(

 

I checked the update history, I don't see the version 1511. Above, I see the links "Uninstall updates" and "Uninstall lastest preview build"

Just for the record, I just installed the 1511 update on my old machine that's running Win10 Pro 32-bit.  The install did complete.  My command prompt still shows the same thing as Pat(rick)'s does.  That update is noted as a cumulative Windows 10 update.

 

What's more interesting, though, is that it has done something really weird with my keyboard.  Now the characters 'i','8', and several others simply will not work.  This was not the case before this update. Woe unto Microsoft if this starts breaking *keyboard* drivers at this stage of the game!!  Luckily that machine is purely "experimental" for me right now.

My upgrade downloaded and seemed to be installing, but, at the end, failed. I have no trace of it in my update history, and a check for updates says I'm up to date. Seems to be happening to quite a few people. You can always use the Media Creation Tool to update. That seems to be having more success.

Same thing... Yesterday on my testbed PC I had two updates waiting - one for Defender and the November upgrade. The defender update installed OK, it then (without any prompting) went and downloaded 3GB over my metered (but not set as metered) connection. It got to 100% (downloading all of the time) and... Failed (with no meaningful error - and I DO know where to look). checking afterwards, no obvious remnants of the 3GB downloaded were present, and it did not offer the update again.

 

What a waste!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I've upgraded the PC from an ISO file now (download the media creation tool from the MS website and create new media). That went OK but the process is similar to an OS upgrade.

 

I've given up on serious use Win 10 for the foreseeable future. My main PC is still (and is likely to remain Win 7) My Dev laptop was on Win 10 from release until earlier this week - It's now back on Win 8.1 pro (and much happier after it's ordeal). My testbed PC remains my only test Win 10 system. At this rate my next hardware upgrade will be to a mac (in a couple of years time). A difficult thing to say after 30 years supporting Microsoft solutions..

I finally manage to install version 1511.

 

I had to check for update many time to download it until it decides to install.

 

I think we have to re-settings some settings again... o.o

Patrick,

 

          Check the post on Windows 10 Discussion Sub-Forum entitled, "Microsoft starts rolling out its first major update to Windows 10", via ZDNet, starting on page 2.  I just posted a list of the settings I found that got reset and need to be redone.  There aren't very many and some of them are odd.   I have no idea why PDF files got reassociated with MS-Edge while all my photo type files, which I reassociated to Irfanview, stayed that way.

 

           Also, it's curious to see what the command prompt screen looks like.  Notice the build number but also notice the copyright date.  MS has projected itself into the future, literally!!:
