[UPDATED] Microsoft has pulled the Windows 10 November Update from Windows Update

Update: Microsoft has responded with comment regarding the situation. They say the update has not been pulled, and instead the November Update is rolling out over time. This still doesn’t explain why the Media Creation Tool is no longer offering 10586, or why the SDKs were pulled from Microsoft servers. We’ll follow up when we know more.

Update 2: Microsoft has provided us with a further comment explaining the situation. See here.

Earlier today, we reported that the Windows 10 November Update was no longer being offered via the Media Creation Tool, and it now appears the update has also been pulled from Windows Update, meaning it is no longer being offered for Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 users looking to upgrade directly.

Microsoft has not made any announcement as to why it has pulled the November Update, but users looking to install it via Windows Update are now met with no download being offered. It also appears the 10586 SDK has been pulled from Microsoft servers too.

It’s too early to tell whether the build has been pulled due to problems with the build itself, or whether it’s a simple technical error. WinBeta has contacted Microsoft for comment regarding the situation, but we likely won’t hear a response until Monday. Until then, why do you think the update has been pulled? Let us know below!
