From "About your PC > Windows specifications":

Edition Windows 10 Pro
Version 21H1
Installed on ‎2020-‎07-‎20
OS build 19043.2193
Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.4180.0

As you can see I have quite an outdated Windows 10. I've been installing Windows Updates as soon as they came, but now it just says "You're up to date".

When I look at Windows 10 21H1 page it's clear that this OS is as good as dead in a month.

Looking at Windows 10 release information it's very clear that there are two major versions that I could install right now, but they don't show up. And according to their enablement pages (https://aka.ms/ekb-21H2, https://aka.ms/ekb-22H2) there's no manual (Microsoft Update Catalog) update option.

22H2 is available in "General Availability Channel", and according to Basics of Windows updates, channels and tools General Availability Channel is associated to Windows 10 Pro.

So my question is simple: Why am I stuck on Windows 10 21H1?

    Hello,

    If you like, you can upgrade via 22H2 ISO file:

    Sooo, funny thing...
    After my previous upgrade to 2021H1 as detailed above, I have done exactly nothing. And now, 2 days after 2021H1 was installed 2022H2 is visible.
    I haven't done the ISO-force-update yet, so another alternative to @Kapil Arya 's solution is patience...
