My Win10 is PRO. winver reports build 10586.104

Several friends say they have .164 or higher, but perhaps their version is HOME.

So I thought I'll check here what's expected.

That's my thought as well, and I wonder why I'm behind.

Any idea what KB number it was? If any.

Windows 10 is so rough to figure out :(

I did run  Check for updates. It errors out. Tells me my internet connection is broken :( go figure. I tried it as limited user as well as admin, no go.

I also read Software distribution report. It shows Defender updates keep coming in constantly, several times a day.

And once in a while some updates for stuff I don't use - those Windows application thingies - keep coming in.

Hmmmm.

Allow for the windows application updates, trust me it helps.

I wish I could pin down the update that gives the latest subversion, but micorosft gives such generic info on that sort of thing.

Several suggestions to fix Windows Update:

 

 

There's not many experts at fixing Windows Updates.
I am not one of them.
But the few experts that there are a sorely overworked - so getting a reply will be difficult.
I'll continue to attempt to help here, but please bear with me.


First, please try the Windows Update troubleshooter/fixes listed here:
Windows Update Troubleshooter:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/gp/windows-update-issues/en-us
Windows Update Troubleshooter KB article:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2714434
Reset Windows Update Components KB article:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058

Then, if that doesn't fix the Windows Update problem, please do the following 2 things. (copied from here:  http://www.sysnative.com/forums/windows-update/4736-windows-update-forum-posting-instructions.html ):

 

Run SFCFix

    This free tool of neimiro's creation (see above link) is a very good starting point for the diagnosis and repair of all Windows Update and System File Checker corruptions. We therefore need you to run this tool prior to collecting logfiles.

        -  First download and run a copy of the tool from http://www.sysnative.com/niemiro/apps/SFCFix.exe.
        -  Work through any on-screen prompts and then await completion (runtime is approximately 15 minutes).
        -  Once it has finished, if there are any unrepaired corruptions (the tool will notify you if it has succeeded in repairing all corruptions if they're simple in which case we're no longer needed) or unresolved problems with your computer, you need to post us the complete logfile which opens on exit. Simply copy (Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C) and paste (Ctrl-V) the entire logfile into your new thread (also know as a 'topic'). How to create a new thread is shown later on in this post.

Export CBS folder
NOTE:  This is not for me (I can't read them).  This is in case you decide to post in the OS forums asking for help from the experts. 

        -  On Windows 8/10, press the Windows key, type This PC, and press Enter.
        -  On Windows Vista/7, click the Start button then click Computer.
        -  Double-click on the C: drive, under the Hard Disk Drives category, and then scroll down to, and double click on the Windows folder.
        -  Find and double click on the Logs folder.
        -  Right-click on the CBS folder, and select Copy.
        -  Go back to your Desktop, right-click on it, and select Paste. You should now see a copy of the CBS folder appear on your Desktop called CBS.
        -  Right-click on this new folder, and navigate through Send to, and select Compressed (zipped) folder.
        -  A new file, also called CBS (CBS.zip), but this time with a different icon, will be created.


As for the first item (SFCFix), just copy and paste into your post as indicated.
For the second item (CBS log), if you'd like it analyzed, start a post in the OS forums, then zip it up and upload it with your next post there (it's not needed in this topic as I can't read it).
If it's too big to upload (or you get an error), just upload it to a free file hosting service (such as OneDrive or DropBox).  Ensure that it's shared and then post a link to it here.

 

If that doesn't work, then try this:

 

Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt).  Press Enter after each one:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
FYI - I have repaired systems using the last command even though problems weren't found with the first 2 - so I suggest running them all.

From this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824869.aspx

You can also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption.

 

If that doesn't work, then try: a RESET using the Keep My Files option.  This may remove some programs/apps, but will leave your data alone

 

If that doesn't work, then try a RESET using the Remove Everythign option.  This will delete everything, so backup your stuff first!

 

Good luck!

 The update for 10586.164 was KB3140768.  You can see all the Windows updates by going to the Programs and Feechurs applet of the Control Panel and clicking View installed updates.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

No internet was an oddity that hasn't repeated, so let's ignore that complaint of mine.

Thank you all for giving me some feedback. Specifically,
usasma - thanks for the excellent set of instructions. I have it bookmarked now for the future, since this time I didn't need to go through your suggested steps. On Windows 7 I once had to make cbs file so I know what you talked about. I just totally forgot those tools.

The fault was mine - I didn't notice that I set to DEFER updates so I could first learn about them. That was the cause why I was two versions behind.
But I can't resist bashing Microsoft: why was the updates window telling me all along I'm up to date. Why didn't they write that such and such updates are available. Windows XP and 7 had/have a list of what's pending. Yet here the logic is broken - NOTHING showed up. Unbeliveable.

That said, once I unchecked DEFER, I got a list of updates and in 8-10 minutes it updated to .122 and then .164 and I'm now ok.
