    Windows 10 not patched

    My windows 10 -10586.29 - AMD 64 bit processor 8 gigs ram, 135 gigs free space on c drive - shows no updates available when I tell it to check for updates, and no updates installed. Does this mean I have never received patches that are issued? Is there any way to force all patches since the automatic patches are not installed?
    Could it be that patches are not listed?
    Any help would be appreciated.
    I have check the drive for errors and windows problems using sfc.

    Thanks

    I seem to recall reading that, by default, Win10 no longer keeps an update list. So you may have had updates done but are unaware of it.

    Even if it were true that Windows did not keep an update list, which I've never seen, the version number would change when any of the cumulative updates were installed.

    I've seen reports of the odd system which does not get updates. You could use the Media Creation Tool to get the latest released version and use to update to the latest.

    When I go into Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update > Advanced Options > View your update history, I get a list of 11 installed updates.
    --- The latest being Update for Windows 10 version 1511 (KB3140741)
    Also View installed updates in Control Panel gives me a list but reports only 7 of them
    --- I just reviewed the differences
    --- Windows updates list includes Adobe Flash Player & Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool but Control Panel doesn't

    10586.29 is mentioned in this thread

    That's quite a difference: I hope I'm on the latest version.
    --- What is the significance of the 10586.29?

    When I look at Windows 10 - through settings, my Windows 10 shows no update history. There are no KBXXXXXXX updates/patches listed.
    I got my current version by downloading the December DVD and "reinstalled" windows 10. It just updated the version but did not delete my applications! I have many work applications installed on my comp0uter - I manage 2 web site and publish several newsletters each month. It would be a pain to erase Windows 10 an install a fresh copy and all my applications - Web Essentials, Vista Buttons, Wow Slider, Office, etc..
    My version is 1511 OS Build 10586.29

    Mine is up to date as far as I know because I get updates as they come out and there is a list in WU. Currently my build is 10586.164.
    I wonder if build 10586.29 is an "Insider" build by any chance.

    Build 10586.29 is an old Insider Build.

    Bob, it appears your are running a preview build. They often do not get patches as they are replaced rather frequently. Are you intentionally running a Windows Insider build?

    I have Version 1511 OS Build 10586.164.
    Is this an insider build and why I have only a few Windows Updates?

    I signed up for the insider program back in Sep but I didn't take part in it.
    I finally upgraded to Windows 10 Pro this Feb using the Media Creation Tool

    No that's not an insider build. After one of the last updates all my old WU'S were gone and the new one's started recording. I believe it was when it updated to 10586.122. Just before it updated to 10586.164

    My latest Insider version is 1511 Build 14295.1000. I have separate computers for Win10, same version as above for the released/free Upgrade plus one for the Insider version.

    “Build 10586.29 is an old Insider Build. Bob, it appears your are running a preview build. They often do not get patches as they are replaced rather frequently.”
    After reviewing what’s going on, it appears to me Joe’s response in post 9 is a pretty good summary.

    Does your computer run ok?
    Have you tried Control Panel’s to see if it provides a list in View Installed updates?

    The computer runs fine. I was in the insiders build in 2014 & 1st half of 2015. I THOUGHT I had updated it in December using the media creation tool. I will try that update later today and see if it works.
    Thanks for the pointers in the right direction ( I hope ).

    Not sure why that got stuck in my head. Something I saw in the past month, perhaps pertaining to a version upgrade? So many things have changed in Win10 that's it's tough to keep up.
