    Windows 10 Insider Program: Updates to New Builds -- Sequential?

    I skipped a few Insider updates due to being absent from my PC. When I returned and was ready to update again, I note that Update elected to update to the next build number in sequence, and not to skip to the latest build number. This suggests that I will not save any data and will have to update sequentially from build to build until I am "current". Am I correct?

    I was on Insider Version 1511 (OS Build 14352.1002) and Update downloaded Version 1606 (OS Build 14366), yet I understand the latest Insider Build is Version 1607 (OS Build 14379)

    No, it is not sequential.

    Don't know why you ended up with 14366 instead of 14379.
    All preview builds up to and including 14352 have an expiry date of July 15th, 2016.
    Starting at build 14366 up to and including the current 14379, the expiry date is October 1st.
    Perhaps this may have something to do with it.

    Stay on Fast ring. I am sure you will soon get a new update to 14379.
    You definitely will not have to update from build to build sequentially.

    Not all of 14379 has an October expiration date. Mine is July 15.

    Curiouser and curiouser:

    My latest update to Insider, as stated on lower right-hand corner of the desktop on my monitor is "Build 14366.rs1_release. 160610-1700"

    When I click "check for updates", I am informed "Your device is up to date. Last checked: Today, ‏‎19:37"

    (Using Winver: "Version 1607 (OS Build 14366.0) Evaluation copy. Expires 02/10/2016 01:59) ?????

    Hmmmm. Wonder if that why it won't upgrade. You may have to use the Media Creation Tool.

    Yours has an expiry date of October 2nd, 2016, while most of us installing it when it was newly released show expiry date : October 1st, 2016.( see post #2).
    The difference is one day.
    I don't see any significance in it.

    This is what most of us got............

    Perhaps, you would need to wait a bit.

    A new preview build 14383 has just been released.
    Do you get it from your Windows Update ?

    @davidhk: When I read your post (#7), I immediately flashed up my VM and started Insider; checked for Updates and "voila", 14383 is downloading as I type this. Why I had to get here via 14366, I do not know.

    I suppose I can now regard this post as "solved"!! Thanks for your interest.
