In some situations, Windows Update service is unable to update to latest Windows 10 edition and/or indicates Windows is already up-to-date.
You can force the update to latest Windows 10 edition by using one of the following methods:
- Using Windows Update
If you notice the text Some settings are managed by your organization in the Windows Update window, it means the updates policy is controlled by your organization/company. To update to latest Windows edition, you should contact your system administrator. Alternatively, you can click Check online for updates from Microsoft Update to check updates directly from Microsoft.
Using Windows 10 update Assistant
Another way to update Windows 10 is to download and launch the Windows 10 update assistant. This small utility is available on https://www.microsoft.com/software-download//windows10.
If you own Windows 10 enterprise or Windows 10 education, the assistant will display an error message. In this situation, you have to contact your system administrator.
