My desktop computer has Win 10 and its version is 15063. Is it totally outdated? I saw the latest version is 16299.

 

How do I update from 15063 to 16299?

I first bought the computer as a legit windows 8.1 then upgraded it to windows 10.

 

Currently, my Windows Update doesn't work anymore. I tried the commands solution but it didn't work. I dont know what else to do. Checking update is stuck for me

FreeBooter had a .bat file that will repair windows update.You could try looking for it on Google.He posts on Bleeping Computer so he is trustworthy.Sometimes if you delete C/Windows/SoftwareDistribution windows update will work again.If all else fails you could install the latest version of Windows 10.I would try deleting the software distribution folders first.

You can also follow the instructions for Updating Windows 10 using the Windows 10 ISO file.  That's how I force updates on systems where Windows Update has gone wonky.  It generally fixes the Windows Update issue(s), too.

 

By the way, and it's not hair splitting, your Build Number is 15063, not your Version Number, which would be 1703 with that Build Number.  You're only one major feature update (AKA Version Update) away from current, which is Version 1709, Build 16299.

Brian would he be able to keep all his info even though his copy of Windows is so old using the ISO? Asking because I have no idea.

Even though you followed this up with an "ignore," it's a good question.

 

Yes, you can keep your apps and data any time you use the ISO update method.  I had two laptops that arrived with Version 1511 loaded on them and I went straight to Version 1709 via the ISO method.  Had I been smart I would have just done a completely clean install, as this would have nuked the "bloatware" and I didn't do any major configuration and software installation until after I did the upgrade.

If I have a problem that is a total nightmare to fix I use my backups or clean install making sure I have all my software licences for any paid software in order.

There are so, so many reasons that taking regular backups, both system image (when major software installation/removal is done and/or lots of new user data is generated) and user data (when the system itself has been relatively static), is the best way to avoid heartaches of many kinds.  

 

The external backup drives are also a lot cheaper than the cost of data recovery from a single HDD.

 

Get an external backup drive and backup, backup, backup!!
