[Update: Available Again] Microsoft Pulls Windows 10 Mobile 10586.29
Windows 10 10586.29 was rolled out earlier this month to all the Windows 10 mobile and PC devices. However, the mobile build created problems for some Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL users who weren't able to install the update. Microsoft has decided to pull the update and is "working on fixes and improvements."
Windows 10 Mobile 10586.29 pulled back:
Microsoft has finally acknowledged the issues with the recently released Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.29. Several Lumia users reported experiencing installation issues after it was rolled out earlier this month. Windows 10 Mobile 10586.29 was seen as the first to Windows as a Service (WaaS) roadmap where all the Windows 10 Mobile and PCs are to receive synchronized updates. Microsoft also pushed the update to AT&T Lumia devices giving a clear statement of bypassing carriers when rolling out these updates. The company had suggested that this would be the future of Windows when all the mobile and desktop devices will receive updates at the same time, carrying the same version number.
While a hiccup in the way of synchronized OS updates, Microsoft is currently investigating the problem. As a number of newly released Lumia devices were unable to install the update, the company has also pulled the update completely today. If you managed to install the latest Windows 10 Mobile build on your Lumia device, Microsoft confirms that those devices will not be affected and will receive the next cumulative updates.
We are aware of issues related to the recently published Windows 10 Mobile update, including: update not being offered, update appearing to get stuck at 0%, and pesky low storage notifications. The team is working on fixes and improvements to the upgrade experience in the short term and with future releases. In the meantime, we have unpublished the 10586.29 update for Windows 10 Mobile from our public update servers while we work through these reports.
For those of you who still see the low storage notification: while bothersome you can safely ignore this message.
For those of you who still have pending updates (OS or apps): make sure to plug your phone into a charger and leave untouched while it works through those items.
[Update]: Microsoft has reissued Windows 10 Mobile 10586.29 build to its Lumia smartphones after fixing the issues:
After momentarily pausing the Windows 10 Mobile update due to an issue with the update server that impacted the installation of the update on a limited number of phones, we have addressed the issue and will begin rolling out the 10586.29 update again.
