Microsoft has announced that the last roadblocks to upgrading to the Windows 10 October version, also known as the 20H2 update, have been removed ahead of the forthcoming 21H1 Can update for Windows 10, planned for release in the coming weeks.
The organisation has revised its documentation for Windows 10 20H2 and Windows Server 20H2 to remind customers that their Windows 10 installations will now be updated to the most recent edition.
Based on the hardware inside, the firm periodically sets ‘blocks’ on updates to the new version of Windows for specific application types. This is normally due to an incorrect driver or other technical problem that prevents users from updating successfully. The customer will be unable to upgrade to the version of Windows until Microsoft or the system maker resolves the problems.
Revised Documentation Available
Microsoft has revised the documentation for Windows 10 20H2 and Windows Server 20H2 to remind users that they should now upgrade their Windows 10 installation from an earlier version such as the 2004 release or the 1909 release from two years prior to the more recent version. Microsoft will eventually stop supporting some older models, so the elimination of these upgrade blocks is a positive step.
Issues with Conexant audio drivers, poorer gaming performance, Microsoft Edge missing on some instals, issues with printing and missing colours from printers, issues with Microsoft Office, Thunderbolt NVMe SSD problems, and issues with Japanese and Chinese languages using the keyboard are only a few of the issues that Microsoft has fixed.
Users running older versions of Windows 10 can update as soon as possible to the new 20H2 version, as Microsoft will cease to support Windows 10 versions launched in November 2019, October 2018, and April 2018. Users will shortly be able to choose between two available Windows builds – May 2020 and October 2020 – with the May 2021 version expected later this month.
