Why is Windows 10 not upgrading to Windows 11?

Occasional Contributor

Hello! I have a question about Windows 10 upgrading to Windows 11.

I have noticed that on my PC, a Lenovo IdeaPad L340, that runs Windows 10, has the capabilities to run Windows 11. When I checked for updates, the message saying that I can upgrade to Windows 11, wasn't there. The PC Health Check app said my PC can run Windows 11.


I'm a little confused. Anyone know why this is happening & how to troubleshoot it? I tried rebooting my device & that did nothing. There is an update that is available for Windows 10, but when I rebooted my device, it said "Working on updates" so is that why Windows 11 isn't available? Thanks in advance!

Please be patient.
The system has built-in diagnostic tools - if it is not ready for installation, it will not perform the action - this is normal.
Alright, thanks! I thought that was an error with the OS itself.

This is a standard notification - which everyone receives , installing Windows11 will happen automatically no need to speed it up .




Hello! You've posted your question in the Tech Community Discussion space, which is intended for discussion around the Tech Community website itself, not product questions. I'm moving your question to the Windows 11 space - please post Windows 11 questions here in the future. 

You screenshot shows there is pending update, let it complete and restart your PC and check for update again.
You don't have to do anything and just wait for the update to become available.
Oh, ok. I'm still new to this so thanks for that.
I got Windows 11 today! It looks like I just had to wait for a day or two for the update to rollout to me, I guess.



Just download it and don't wait for windows updates. You can download it from MSFT directly at 


Can you please help me? I have the same laptop but I still haven't received the update.


HI I think the easiest way will be to download the update assistant, it will prepare the components for installation - just download - your settings and files will remain unchanged.


This assistant is for those who wish to:
