    Windows 10 Update - Safeguard Hold

    I have several Windows 10 PCs that have recently been upgraded to Windows 10 version 1903. I also have several Windows 10 PCs that are not able to upgrade to Windows 10 version 1903. If you go to one of these Windows 10 version 1809 PCs and then go to
    Settings, Update & Security, Windows Update, Check for updates... the response is: "You're up to date" - which is obviously wrong and is a bug in the Windows 10 "Check for updates" process.

    I assume one of the more likely causes of this situation is that there is a "Safeguard Hold" on these particular PCs.

    How does one determine if a Windows 10 PC has a "Safeguard Hold"?

    Windows 10 Update - Safeguard Hold

    Thanks Greg,

    Yes, I am very familiar with your "Clean Install Windows 10" forum article - and - yes, it is the gold-standard for doing a clean install of Windows 10.

    I did run the Windows Update Assistant, Windows10Upgrade9252.exe from Download Windows 10 on one of my problematic PCs - and, it worked.

    I received this odd version of Windows 10 Update on a v1803 PC today (it had been stuck at v1803 for months):

    I assume that V1903 is considered optional and not necessarily recommended for this PC.

    At this point I'm thinking I may just hold off on v1903 updates for a few more weeks and give Microsoft more time to address some issues they apparently are having with some PCs.

    Still, I wish there was a way to find out what specifically puts a specific PC into "Safeguard Hold".

    Microsoft to make Windows 10 updates mandatory

    Well, at the moment at least, you can choose to defer upgrades. Under Settings > Windows Updates > Advanced options you need to check the box labeled "Defer upgrades". What does that do? Good question. The answer I've found might illuminate it to a degree.

    I hear this only applies to Pro and Enterprise editions. But I can't verify that.
