I believe Windows 11 is being released in phases to compatible devices. He can manually upgrade by downloading the media creation tool.

Because it's a gradual rollout over several months, use the instalation assistant for an in place upgrade would seem appropriate? UK - Download Windows 11 or US - Download Windows 11 depending on where you are.

Thanks guys, that's what I thought. It's a gradual update or he can update it himself. It's a Dell computer. I was wondering if maybe Dell is holding the Windows 11 update back.

He can update via the media creation tool if he wishes.
Ensure he has created a disk image backup in case of problems.

Media Creation Tool isn't required for this. You can just download and install Windows 11 Installation Assistant, which is the easiest method by far. But remember it will automatically reboot your computer within 30 minutes after the upgrade installation finishes. You can still also grab the ISO file later if needed.
