IMPORTANT!! Please read if you are not seeing build 20175!

Hello Insiders!

Today we released Build 20175 to the Dev Channel, and as you may be aware, some devices were not offered this build from Windows Update. Several of you reported this issue immediately, and we thank you for that!

We discovered a service side issue that prevented some AMD and Intel devices from detecting the new build. This issue has been resolved on the backend. If you were impacted, please follow these steps:

  1. Open the Start Menu.
  2. In the search box, type CMD.exe.
  3. On the right menu under Command Prompt, select Run as administrator. 
  4. If prompted by UAC, choose Yes.
  5. From the elevated prompt, enter this command, then hit enter: net stop wuauserv
  6. Enter this command, then hit enter: rmdir /s /q C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\SLS
  7. Finally, enter this command, then hit enter: net start wuauserv
  8. Close the Command Prompt window.
  9. Open Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update and check for updates. 

You should now see Build 20175 is available.

Thanks again for reporting this issue!

Here we go:

Update = Replace old bugs with new ones.
Known an anomaly, however, in the update, my laptop now after performing the procedure described above sees the new build, has downloaded it without problems, the pre-installation started and when the 50% arrived, who knows why it started to download it again , let's see if we can update the laptop
