Microsoft has announced that they managed to resolve all the upgrade blocking issues for Windows 10 version 2004, and version 20H2. Now owners of Conexant or Synaptics devices can finally to get the latest version of the operating system.
The Conexant driver upgrade block was a long standing issue, first introduced in May 2020. The drivers were causing BSODs and crashes. With the latest drivers, this is no longer a case.
However, the Redmond company noted that the updated drivers are gradually become available to users, so right now they may be not available to your device. In this situation Windows 10 will display version 20H2 as an upgrade option, but will rollback it to your previously installed OS build. Microsoft suggests to repeat the upgrade procedure to get it successfully installed. According to the company, it can take up to 48 hours before you will be prompted to install the latest Windows 10 version.
The official information about the lifting of the remaining upgrade blocks is about time, because Windows 10 version 1909 reaches its end of support in a few days. Microsoft will no longer support consumer editions of this OS starting May 11, 2021. Home, Pro, and Pro Education edition users will have to install either Windows 10 version 2004 or version 20H2 to receive security updates.
The end of support for Windows 10 version 1909 opens another interesting period of time for the OS, as all supported released (2004, 20H2, and the upcoming 21H1 release) will get the same servicing updates, as the latter two are just enablement packages.
