I was just offered the opportunity to upgrade to Windows 11 in the Release Preview Channel. I gladly accepted the offer. The upgrade downloaded, then installed (seemingly 100%), and then rebooted. Windows came back up and it looked exactly the same as before. I checked Windows Update and I was again offered the opportunity to upgrade to Windows 11. I again accepted the offer, the upgrade downloaded, and the machine rebooted. When it came back up I wasn't surprised - the machine was still a Windows 10 Pro version 21H1 (OS Build 19043.1263) machine.
I then tried a simple Windows Update, and rather than finding any updates Windows Update encountered an error. I retried finding updates many times, but I continued to get the error (0xc1900101). The option to upgrade to Windows 11 has disappeared.
I read that it might help to unplug attached devices. I did that for all but my mouse and keyboard and rebooted. Tried doing Windows Update again and got the same error (0xc1900101).
I went to the Insider Program, clicked on "Get Help," opened a chat, and then was directed to post here. Hope someone can help.
My machine is an Intel NUC with Core i7-10710 processor and 64 GB of RAM. It has Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3920.0.

@_RBL_ I have selected the Release Preview Channel. I downloaded the ISO (Windows10_InsiderPreview_Client_x64_en-us__19044.iso), but when clicking on it I receive the following message:
If I try to right click on the file then file explorer will restart. Do I need to go out and buy some writable DVDs?

I regularly use the Intel® Driver & Support Assistant for my NUC. It is always updated to the latest BIOS. I just checked again, and it does have the latest BIOS. (0053 // Date: 7/7/2021.)

Of course, I wrote about the Intel assistant.
The assistant has the highest privileges and perhaps the process does not close when trying to migrate, but other programs can also cause conflict.
Whoa! If that is true, and Microsoft doesn't do something about it, there will be chaos on October 5.
I'll uninstall and re-install as you suggest. If it helps I'll make a celebratory post here. (I doubt it will, since I've never had a problem with the Intel product.)
