    Would like to upgrade to Win 10 but can't get any updates


    Hi there everyone,
    I have been struggling terribly with my WU. I am currently running 8.1 Pro, 64 bit. But for the past few months, none of the automatic updates have been working. Some of them download, but don't install. Some won't download. I Would like to upgrade to 10 eventually, but I can't seem to get KB 3035583 to get it.

    I've run almost everything that I feel I can safely do (I'm not computer illiterate, but I'm not an expert user -- I'm struggling here. It's been months, really), to no avail. Update troubleshooter, DISM check health & restore health, sfc/scannow, many of the fixes I've found on this forum; nothing seems to be working and I am a little afraid that I may have done something that can't be repaired! Everyone seems so helpful here so I thought maybe you'd all help me out
    Thanks so much, have a great weekend!

    You don't need GWX to upgrade... You can post in TenForums regarding upgrading with the Media Creator tool.
