Yesterday I updated my 32 bit PC which did the Anniversary one OK.
 
Today I went to updates on my 64 bit laptop but there was no sign of the Anniversary one but it updated to the 10586.494 from the .210 build.
 
Now tonight going to updates on my netbook which I haven't used for 2 weeks or so it started to update to 5% and then said the computer was up to date with the last update date of 18th July!!!
 
Can anyone explain what is going on here? - thanks.

It's a phased rollout over time.  Newer PCs go first.  You can click Settings -> Update & Security if you want it right now.

 

 Good luck.


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

Thanks for responding.

 

That's how I got to the updates , thru Settings which gave me differing downloads. The laptop is newer than the PC and the netbook the oldest but is that really the difference? I've never seen any info on that anywhere which I thought would be explained on the many tech sites.

If I were running win 10 as a main OS (which I am not), I would reboot the pc(s), and then leave them on till the update process takes its course.

 

Are you running any dual boot systems on any of those PC's ??

If this is like the last several "major updates" the rollout will be weeks long, and will be influenced by what Microsoft is getting back from telemetry as far as whether to speed it up, slow it down, or suspend it entirely.

 

I wish I could remember now which one it was, but one of the major updates last year got stopped in its tracks because of unanticipated bugs that were revealed by telemetry.

 

This is not like an update to Windows Defender definitions or the typical "Patch Tuesday" updates.  

 

Using the manual Windows Update function in Update & Security will not guarantee you to get the Anniversary Update, either.  It's downloaded and installed on my HP laptop (Win10 Home 64-bit), not yet on a Toshiba laptop (Win10 Home 64-bit) on the same network and with update sharing on the network turned on.  My Win10 Pro 32-bit downloaded and attempted to install the Anniversary Update and it failed.  It has not retried again over several days, and I've tried manually triggering it on that box multiple times.

No dual boots on any computer.

 

From britechguy it seems there is no consistency on these download updates so I'll just wait for the auto updates appear in due course. Now I know that it isn't my computers not performing well.

 

Thanks again to all responders.

If you have recently upgraded to Windows 10 or to a newer build, then you will not be offered the Anniversary Update, until a month after. Microsoft did this just in case you want to go back to the previous OS. If you want to install the Anniversary Update now, then follow these instructions:

 

Upgrading to latest Windows 10 build

We will try to get you upgraded to the latest build using the Windows 10 update tool:

Note: Although the chances of data loss are slim, it is advisable to back up your data

 

First of all, disable your antivirus

 

Go to this page: Windows 10

Click on Upgrade Now

Run the tool, and follow the on-screen instructions

Let us know if there are any errors/problems when installing this

There's certainly no pattern that your random end user, including myself, will ever be able to detect.  Also, the rollouts can be and have been changed due to telemetry information that's come in from the earliest to be upgraded that indicate potential trouble spots that might be ironed out prior to continuing the rollout.

 

Unless there's some desperate reason one simply has to have one of these major upgrades pronto, the best thing to do is to wait until they get pushed out to your machine via the usual Windows Update process.  Given the way the early days on this one have gone I'm more than happy to wait for the other two Windows 10 machines in my household to keep chugging along on 1511 until the issues already identified with 1607 are ironed out.
