Pretty much the titles says it all. I need 1809 build of Win 10 for my machine but Windows update fails to find it and tells me "You're already up to date" when in fact I am running 1803. I've checked the tested laptops on the dell site and g5s are listed there, but alas... Mine fails to find the update.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I would check for errors in the windowsupdate logs to get this log open powershell as administartator and type "Get-WindowsUpdateLog" (no "") on your desktop is now a file called WindowsUpdate.log check this for errors.
If the problem persists you can always use the mediacreationtool to create a usb to perform the upgrade but in that case a data backup is your friend .
The log does not seem to contain any errors, at least not at first glance. The only thing that comes close to an error is:
Failed to find update with global id of 867F8737-CBC4-4FF2-8431-4CAFEF77D4EF.200
although I have no idea what that global id is referring to. Could be 1809 could be something else...
Also, yes I guess I could use the usb stick trick, but that feels wrong... I'd ideally want to do it in the native way.
I understand your preference todo it the native way you should get a blue looking popup when windows update finds that upgrade to 1809.You could check the windows update history to see the date information of the last successfull update last Tuesday was a "patch tuesday" as microsoft calls this with several updates to 1809.
If the date of your last succesfull update is a long time ago there is a problem somewhere for example in the past i've had a problem with my antivirus that was causing windows update to have issues.
