As well as my supported machines I have an i5 4th gen laptop that I dual boot W10 and W11 dev (latest build) Today the W10 received it's security updates but the below screenshot is what I'm getting on W11. Just checked one of my supported machines and it updates fine, this is what I get on the unsupported one: Anyone else seeing this on old machines?

Well, the problem with unsupported installations is they ate not supported.

MS have clearly stated they cannot guarantee updates in unsupported PCs. The older the CPU, the more likely you will get issues. 4th Gen is pretty old by modern standards.

Equally, it may be failing for other reasons e.g. something has corrupted etc. I would try a clean install and see if you still get issues.

My question was is anyone else seeing it, I’m fully aware of what unsupported means and I’m pretty aware that this particular machine is past its sell by date, it’s the reason I use it to try dev builds out before I pass to my compliant machines. If this is the end of updates then I’m fine with that just wanting to confirm it’s not just mine

My non-compliant running 11 has no such problem, but it's only three years old, and meets the specs except for the gen of the CPU: it's 7, not 8+.

Hi,
If you want to use dev or even insider builds be ready for weird rubbish to happen
Otherwise just install full release builds there are plenty of bugs in them lol

All three of my 11 installs were cracked upgrades none are have any issues beside the crap default designs.

About to upgrade a 13 year old acer q9550
It has 7-10pro and soon 11pro to after a 10 system image completes.

You can't get much less supported than the 1st gen Intel processor in my System Two. I have it running the RTM build of 11 and it's getting all the updates.
