While most of the Windows Insiders are anxiously waiting for the next Windows 10 build, it seems the folks at Redmond are working on fixing issues which are present in the current Windows 10 Build 10130, which was released to Insiders almost three weeks ago. There’s an issue in the build which prevents Windows Update to look for a new builds, a bug which may have caused delay in the release of the new build
The issue appears to effect those using the Core edition of the Windows 10 Preview. Fret not as Microsoft has released a fix for this issue. If you hit the Windows Update button on your Windows 10 build 10130, you’ll be greeted with KB3070677 Update which addresses this issue.
Microsoft mentioned on the update page about the symptoms of this issue:
Consider the following scenario:
- You install a Core Edition of Windows 10 Insider Preview.
- You are running Build 10130 of this Core Edition of Windows 10 Insider Preview.
- There are new preview builds available for your current preview build settings.
In this scenario, when you scan for new preview builds, Windows Update does not detect the available preview builds.
Windows 10 is just around the corner and is set to launch for desktops on July 29th, followed by a staggered launch for other platforms as well. There’s a little time left, but the software giant has to make sure the operating system is stable, and doesn’t turn out to be a mess for the early adopters.Further reading: build 10130, Microsoft, Windows 10
