I was never offered Windows 11 22H2 update and now my Windows 11 21H2 is out of service. How do I update to the latest version of Windows? Windows update says that "You're up to date", yet "About system" shows I'm still at 21H2. I have all the proper Windows 11 requirements and nothing I'm aware of preventing an upgrade.

model: avadirect custom made i9 desktop bought in 2018 which came with Windows 10, upgraded from 10 to 11 some time afterwards. Currently still on Windows 11 21H2

Whatever the cause may be, the problem can be solved by downloading and installing 22H2 with a USB drive.

Sorry for the late reply. The problem solved itself yesterday. I magically was offered and installed 22H2 yesterday on Windows Update. Don't know where it was the past year, but it's fixed now.

Glad to hear. I would double check for further updates & see if they install OK.
