Windows 10 Mobile update yanked following install issues

Microsoft recently released a small patch for Windows 10 Mobile that was supposed to fix some minor bugs. Unfortunately, many folks took to Microsoft’s forums to complain that they weren’t able to install the update. Now it has been pulled.

I actually ran into this issue while trying to update the AT&T Lumia 950 review unit I have on my desk. The update would just sit at 0% and then tell me I didn’t have enough storage available, though I had more than 10GB free on my phone. Microsoft has acknowledged the issue.

“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,” Microsoft forum moderator Mike Mongeau said, according to ZDNET. “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 In the meantime, we have unpublished the 10586.29 update for Windows 10 Mobile from our public update servers while we work through these reports.”

Sounds like it won’t be long until the update is re-released, and at least you can now have peace of mind knowing that it’s not just your phone that’s unable to update.
