Microsoft Has Pulled Threshold 2 From Windows Update

Here's hoping that Microsoft didn't pull their big update because of some massive, undisclosed bug. And please don’t tell me I’m going to need to go through that update process all over again.

Microsoft has not made any announcement as to why it has pulled the November Update, but users looking to install it via Windows Update are now met with no download being offered. It also appears the 10586 SDK has been pulled from Microsoft servers too.

Update: Microsoft has offered an explanation.

"The November update was originally available via the MCT (Media Creation Tool), but the company decided that future installs should be through Windows Update. People can still download Windows 10 [Build 10240] using the MCT tool if they wish. The November update will be delivered via Windows Update. Microsoft has not pulled the Windows 10 November 10 update. The company is rolling out the November update over time آ– if you don’t see it in Windows Update, you will see it soon."
