Windows 10 Updates Are Not Installed

The last version so far is considered to be 1607. The first two digits indicate the year, the second. The month. Consequently, Microsoft can make releases for at least another 85 years. Upgrading to 1607 (build 14393) is called a jubilee for the reason that it came out about a year after a dozen saw the light of day. At the same time it was announced that it would be impossible to upgrade from sevens and eights. Exclusive rights granted to people with disabilities. If you do not install the update on the Windows 10 operating system, do not rush to scold Billy Gates.

Why is this happening?

We assume that the master wipes the snot after someone. Someone has done trouble, and you need to make the PC work. In all other cases, updates are usually made, but it happens that it is not the first or even the second time. That’s when there was still a seven, then problems of this kind arose more often. For Windows 10, this is uncharacteristic.

Why is this still happening? Here’s what Microsoft says (

  1. Check your network connection.
  2. Try again.
  3. Use our cool Trouble Shooter.

Windows 10 Updates Are Not Installed


Download the utility and try to find out why the next package is not installed. The tool is combined, so when you start, select the desired option.

Actually, it all comes down to a troubleshooting tool, which does not need to be downloaded, because it already exists on the PC. At least that is the case after upgrading Windows 10 to version 1607.


First of all, try to solve the problem through the wizard.

  1. Win S to enter the search.
  2. We type “troubleshooting.”.
  3. We select the line we need.
  4. The desired option is visible. Let readers not be fooled by the curve translation of the interface. Click!
  5. The next step may be lengthy. The wizard will begin to look for problems.
  6. In our case, everything is in order, so the horizon is clear.

Group Policy Check

Updates may be prohibited by local policies. Of course, this was done by the administrator (or a virus on his behalf).

  • Win R.
  • We type msc.
  • We make our way along the path: PC configuration. Administrative templates. Windows components. Update center.
  • Check if the parameter specified on the screen is set. It can flexibly influence the update policy.
  • In case of any doubt, check the Disabled box, and then. Not set. Each time you need to press the Apply button in the lower right corner.

Check through the registry

The issue of banning updates was raised on the Microsoft website ( We need to make sure that none of these keys exist in the registry. Some of them repeat the setting that we examined above.

We remind you that the editor is launched as follows:

  1. Win R.
  2. Regedit.

Of course, there is nothing on our PC in this place, but if kb3199209 and other packages could not be installed, then users should check the registry. This is true not only for Windows 10 Pro, but also for home (where there is no Group Policy snap-in).

Pending Updates

The Microsoft utility provides the ability to hide updates for some time ( Use it to check if someone tried to do the same on this PC.

  1. Download the program to the specified address.
  2. Run it.
  3. Choose Show.
  4. Make sure that everything matches our screen. Otherwise, open the updates.

About the same thing (but less efficiently) can be done through the system menu. If you just can’t wait for the update to install on Windows 10, do this:

  • Win I.
  • Select the last option in the list.
  • Click on the link Additional options.
  • Check that there is no installed checkbox of the delayed installation (version 1607).

We reviewed the recommendations made by the corporation on a PC that refuses to be updated. There are not many actions. So, Microsoft believes: updates should be installed. If this does not interfere.

Is it necessary?

We once showed that sometimes utilities try to deliver updates, although everything has already been updated. Check your build:

  1. Win I.
  2. System.
  3. About the system.

In the English interface you are looking for version, and if the update starts to be installed on the latest build, ignore such tricks. The most reliable way to check for packages through the same interface (Win I). Others from time to time give something wrong. An updated PC that does not need an update? Anything can happen!
