In what may somewhat of a black eye for the Windows 10 Mobile team, their first update to bypass carrier testing has had to be pulled due to installation issues on a minority of handsets, which included “update not being offered, update appearing to get stuck at 0%, and pesky low storage notifications.”
In the Microsoft Answers forum a moderator explained their issue and actions:
First, we want to thank everyone for their open and candid feedback on the update experience so far. Please know we’re reading your comments and hearing you loud and clear. Your input is incredibly valuable in helping us address your questions with timely updates and fixes.
We are aware of issues related to the recently published Windows 10 Mobile update, including: update not being offered, update appearing to get stuck at 0%, and pesky low storage notifications. The team is working on fixes and improvements to the upgrade experience in the short term and with future releases. In the meantime, we have unpublished the 10586.29 update for Windows 10 Mobile from our public update servers while we work through these reports.
For those of you who still see the low storage notification: while bothersome you can safely ignore this message.
For those of you who still have pending updates (OS or apps): make sure to plug your phone into a charger and leave untouched while it works through those items.
Ironically one of the line items for the 10586.29 update was “additional improvements in upgrade experience, including devices with limited free space,…” Prior to the update being unpublishing hard resetting your handset was one way of resolving the issue but that is of course somewhat drastic, though not too terrible soon after purchasing a device. Unfortunately it seems the update was unpublished on Saturday, meaning some hard reset their devices to find no update was available anymore.
On my 950 I installed .29 via the Insider update without any issue. Have our readers been affected by this issue? Let us know below.
