Windows 10 Update/Upgrade with Linux Dual Boot issue



  • I have been trying to upgrade one of my Dual Boot Windows/Deepin Machines and since February I had issues installing updates even when Windows 10 was set to be primary on GRUB reboot. Today while attempting to upgrade Windows 10 from 1709 to 1803 I found this issue when running the media creation tool or Update assistant:

    So I reviewed the issue and find the Windows 10 Partition is not active on Disk Manager:

    I make the partition active

    Then run the Update tool again and it works:

    Install works and all is well:

    Just wanted to share if someone with Dual Boot has this issue.
