However, even after installing the latest system updates, some users are still reporting that they are not getting the upgrade notification in the system tray. If the icon is not appearing, then it means that you cannot reserve your free upgrade to Windows 10, and your system won’t download the OS when it’s released.
So to tackle this situation, here’s what you need to do, courtesy of Ghacks.

Step 3: Now, press 1 and hit Enter to run an update status check, which will check if your system is up to date or not.
Step 4: If your system is up to date, then now you can try all the other three methods, but first try out the “Quick-Method #1.” If this method doesn’t helps, then try out the remaining methods one after the other.
When the script is running, it will also explain what task the script will perform. For many users, the Quick Method #1 orQuick Method #2 solved the issue. Go ahead, try it out.
