Hi,

According to Ars Technica, due to an issue with some privacy settings resetting to defaults, Microsoft pulled the Version 1511 upgrade from Windows Update and Media Creation Tool, both of which are now back in business. The article can be found at:

Microsoft KB article 3121244 explaining this outage:

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3121244

 

For those who are still using RTM (build 10240), this means you can go ahead and wait for Version 1511 (10586) to appear in Windows Update or grab the new update via MCT. Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph (P.S. Please do spread this around)
