Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.29 was pushed out worldwide to all Windows 10 Mobile devices roughly a week ago. However, a small subset of Lumia 950 and 950 XL users could not download the update due to a glitch in the update process.
Due to this error, Microsoft pulled the update for 950 devices for a day to investigate the issue releasing the following statement.
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 In the meantime, we have unpublished the 10586.29 update for Windows 10 Mobile from our public update servers while we work through these reports.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.”
Microsoft has now concluded its investigations and has made the OS available to download to Lumia 950 users issuing the following statement to ZdNet’s Mary Jo Foley.
After momentarily pausing the Windows 10 Mobile update due to an issue with the update server that impacted the installation of the update on a limited number of phones, we have addressed the issue and will begin rolling out the 10586.29 update again”
