    Default Win10 update 11/8 approx.

    When I came to switch the computer off the other night, it told me to restart it to install the latest version. I did so, and about 9 hours later it still had the dots circling, and told me it was at 100%. After a bit longer I gave up and switched the machine off. I then restarted it, and it said something like " unable to complete installation and that it was undoing the installation. Last night I left the machine on as it was doing a scheduled backup using Acronis. In the morning it seemed OK, and was not demanding an update.

    Winver tells me that I have Windows 10 Version 20H2 Build 19042.1165. Is this the latest version? if not how do I get it?

    20H2 is outdated. The current is 21H1 - Build as Bryan posted.

    Some 1904's have problems updating.

    If so best way is to go to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10 Try upgrading from there or Download the ISO, (Create Windows 10 installation media) mount it, double click the setup.exe and do a inplace upgrade. (better option)

    Thanks for the replies, Obviously my version is out of date. I tried the first of wainuitech's suggestions (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10), but with similar results. Regarding the "Download the ISO, (Create Windows 10 installation media) mount it, double click the setup.exe and do a inplace upgrade. (better option)", can you give me more advice on how to do this?

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...d/windows10ISO

    download 10 media creator.
    You will get the option to make a Bootable Win10 USB : do that
    Run the installer from that USB, while win is up & running
