I'm currently at 1073 build 15063.877 of windows 10 pro.  Every day I get the same message that windows need to restart to complete an update.  When I look at the update history, I am up to 10 restarts for 1079.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

That is the problem, I just don't know.  I watch the entire update process with all the warnings about do not turn off, and % complete etc.  It does a reboot and appears to finish.  The next day I get the "system requires a restart to finish the update.

Here is a screenshot of how many it has done from history.  No errors, no indication of a problem, just Deja vu, all over again.

Hi Did you go here and click on "Update now"?  https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

This update may take several hours to complete. Also check your setting "Update&Security" "Restart options"

Also click on "Check for updates" Then click on "Restart now"

Here's a link from MS community.

Not yet.  I downloaded the update and used the media creation tool to put it on a flash drive.  I will try to run it from there later this evening.

That will work! You could have just clicked on "Update Now" That would install the November latest build. This may take a long time, so be patient. Let me know how things go.

OK, Doing the update manually worked.

I'm not sure why it would not finish on its own since there were no error indications, just a reboot every night for about 12 nights.

Thanks Slik333 for the help.

Hi You're welcome. Check in settings and see if you have some thing checked about when to down load updates. Do you have a metered connection?

The good thing is you got them installed. Thanks for the update!

Nope, settings were good, no metered connection, only throttled on speed for uploads.  Everything appeared to work, as it shows in the update history I attached previously, it just says requires a restart.  After I did that a dozen times and it said it completed 100% but requested another restart6 the next day, I knew I had to do something different.  

Manually applying the update fixed the problem and brought me to the "HI" conversation indicating the update worked.

OK Sounds good. Windows updates can be very strange. I'm glad the Manual option worked for you. Thanks for your reply. I some times get discouraged when members fail to respond. You done well. Thanks!

Here's a article I created on another help forum about windows updates.

I have found 5 ways to install W10 updates.
1) The preferred way is the automatic update method, but that doesn't always work.
2) You can go to setting and click on Update and Security. Then click on "Check for updates
3) You can go here and click on "Update now". This will give you the update assistant tool.
4) You can also create a media creation tool and give it a try. This is a great tool to have in your desk drawer. It will help you repair and reinstall Windows when issues come up at a latter time.
5) If all the above methods fail you can use the Windows update Catalog to install the updates manually. You should make sure that your computer is compatible and can run W10.
Finally you can also do a clean install, which is the best install of W10 that you will ever get.
PS. Check here to see if your PC can run W10. Here's a good link for getting your PC ready for the updates. I hope this helps someone to successfully install W10 updates.
Here's a link to check if your PC is freezing or locking up when installing the updates
Good luck. I hope you are successful with the updates. They are very important.
