    I've never encountered those "No instance(s) available" messages, but could you retry with the sha-1 part removed from the Du for sources cab file name?

    I always set the settings by the main script too, never used the ini.

    With optional features it means all that would be needed for a successful upgrade.

    MSFT doesn't inform about what it offers anymore, afaik.

    Which is? I guess it's not only DU for Sources and DU for SafeOS.

    I changed the file name and set the settings in the main script and is fixed.

    I think it was renaming the .cab that fixed it though.

    Du for sources, du for safeos, and if there are new ssu/cu available, them too.

    i am re-checking with an uptodate 19041.572 install and an uptodate 19042.572 ISO.

    Sorry to raise the issue again, but since the issue has already arisen in this thread: if I run an “online” in-place install, I’ve never been clear about how much of that install is the result of files being copied from the ISO and how much of the install is from a web install that copies files from MS servers. The “online” DU process is a bit vague. When you are running the setup program, it doesn’t notify you when you are downloading FOD’s, language packs, SSUs, DUs. Setup just runs and gives you a percentage and a circle of dots and I’ve always felt this is vague. Hell, for all I know, MS could be downloading my personal info and I wouldn’t even know it.

    When the option is set to download updates, drivers and other needed stuff it will download them, no install files.
    Just check the windows~bt folder for what is downloaded, i am making a video of the process as we speak.

    Just to be sure, not all Catalog updates are called Preview, some updates are Catalog only (not released on UUP/WU) and Catalog updates are usually preceded by UUP ones?

    No of course not all Catalog updates are Preview, but catalog preview updates are offered on WU as optional update.

    Not all rp/beta updates will be promoted to catalog or public wu, many times there is a newer one before that happens.

    Are non-preview Catalog updates offered on WU as optional updates for non-insiders?

    Non preview updates on catalog ARE regular public updates.

    I presume all channel updates are called "Preview".

    No:

    These are the channels:

    - DEV channel, isolated not related to any build test channel
    - Beta channel, atm offering the same updates as the next channel
    - Release Preview channel, offering the same updates as the previous channel
    - Retail channel, offers public updates

    And you have Catalog Preview updates, not really preview and previously known as third week non security updates, and catalog only, but as with 7 and 8.1 it got the preview designation in the release name on catalog and now they are offered as optional updates on WU too.

    I thought all Beta/Release Preview updates had "Preview" on their name.

    Beta/RP channel updates have INSIDER PREVIEW <insert channel here> in their "release name".

    So "online" DUs only work with a clean install?
    It must be "online" AND "clean install"?
    AND you must enable it?

    I don't know what this means.

    A clean install doesn't need a DU for sources, you can strip all files down to the bare and it will still install.

    it is used for upgrades, depending on the files it updated on the ISO.

    DU for SafeOS is now used by MSFT to update the winre.wim image on the released ISOs, instead of the full LCU.

    Clean-install (in this context) means an empty partition. One that does not have any prior version of Windows 10 already installed on it. A partition that does not have any applications or programs installed on that partition concurrent with Windows 10.
