  1. 1809 refuses to update to 1909. Have tried almost everything


    Initially Windows Update WU "found" 1909 and tried to install it itself. It goes through a few restarts, "Attempting to recover installation", "Undoing changes made to your computer". It gave me the error 0xc1900101, then after a few solutions and restarts, it gave me error 0xc19001e1. Now I get no "errors", because I can't do it through WU anymore.

    After every solution I tried, I still get the same result. I tried
    - detaching all hardware components except Mouse and Keyboard
    - checked device manager for errors - none
    - sfc/scannow - all fine
    - running the Update troubleshooter
    - updating display driver
    - disabled all third-party security software
    - DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth - all fine
    - disabling all non Microsoft services
    - resetting WU, via
    net stop wuauserv
    net stop appidsvc
    net stop cryptSvc
    net stop bits
    net stop msiserver
    Ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
    Ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old
    net start wuauserv
    net start appidsvc
    net start cryptSvc
    net start bits
    net start msiserver
    - using Windows Update Assistant

    Looking for any other solutions which don't require
    - a clean install of Windows 10
    - reimaging the PC
    - resetting my PC

    I would like to try installing 1903 first, so I downloaded it from here but then when I click on it it says "This update is not applicable to your computer."
    http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4505057

    It has gotten to the point where now if I click "Check for updates" in WU, it won't even "find" 1909, yet it still has the message "You’re currently running a version of Windows that’s nearing the end of service. We recommend you update to the most recent version of Windows 10 to get the latest features and security improvements." WU has no trouble finding, downloading and installing the latest Security Intelligence Updates for Windows Defender though.

    So I can only attempt to update to 1909 via Windows Update Assistant and it gives me the same result as at the top every time.

    Are there any log files I can check?

    Please help. Thank you

    :)

    Windows 10 1903 1909 repeated failure to update

    Well would't you know it. I did everything, every step, all the suggestions, months of failed downloads and was going to wipe everything tomorrow and start again, but remembered I hadn't tried your suggestion of updating to 1809 before 1903/09, and blow
    me down, but it's updated to 1809 with ease!

    I have yet to dare to try and get it to update to 1909 but it's the 1st progress in months, so thanks.

  3. Windows 10 update 1909

    Hey,

    I've just clean installed windows 10. It is build 1803.

    Today awesome 1909 have launched. I want to update to 1909 but in settings it is showing me option to upgrade to 1809. My friend told me I have to upgrade to 1809, then 1903 and then finally 1909.

    I want to directly upgrade to 1909 without going through intermediate steps. How can I do this?

    Windows 10 1909 Causes Secondary Hard Drive to not be Recognized

    Since updates can only be delayed for so long, an actual fix would be appreciated.
