Hello @chardringer - Welcome to Computer Forums 👋

This is strange - sometimes Microsoft do hold back the update for some machines if it could cause issues with drivers.

It might also be worth checking the update hasn’t already come down - if you press Windows + R and type ‘winver’ what build version do you get?

That is the previous build so not sure why it’s not letting you update.

If you run the Windows 10 Update Assistant which you can download from here, does it let you complete the update?

Do you know how much free disk space you have on your PC? If you use a netbook or similar some can have a small amount of storage and this can block updates, though the newer Windows 10 builds are supposed to reserve enough disk space to be able to update.
