Are you not seeing the Update?
-If you have checked and it is not there, wait a few more days, as it does take some time for it to become available in all regions.
-If you have recently installed Windows 10 or bought and activated a new version (such as buying a new computer for example), the Feature Update will not be available for at least 31 days.
-You may have the option set up in Windows Update options to "Defer Upgrades." This can be fixed by deselecting the option and trying again for a while to see if it will allow the Feature Update.
-Bottom line: You can solve this by using the Windows 10 Update Assistant or Media Creation Tool.
