ThinkPad Yoga 14 - Lenovo Solution Center: showing strange messages

Right. So, hello and thanks in advance. I have a ThinkPad Yoga 14, updated and running the latest version of Windows 10 Home 64-bit. First of all, I have to point out that this issue could not be an issue with app incompatibility because all Lenovo apps and programs are working, however LSC seems to be throwing up a strange error message. It has been displaying the same errror message since moment one of upgrading to W10, this issue wasn't present in W8.

Under system, I get a Software Update critical warning and it says:

"Windows Update

You never updated Windows

Status: out of date

Last update: not available

To update your operating system, you must run Windows Update.

[Launch]"

Strangely enough, no amount of clicking on the launch button will actually start wUpdate. And that's it. I've already recieved, downloaded and installed a dozen updates and the message is still there. On another post here in the forum I read that if updates weren't set to download and install automatically I would get that error, but I haven't changed any update settings. Everything is automatic. Instaling, downloading, everything. Any ideas?

 

 

Mod's Edit: System model added to Subject line to improve visibility / clarity

Have a good day.

Looks like we're in the same boat. Got any snacks while we wait?

Re: Lenovo Solution Center: showing strange messages

guess it's a problem with the old lsc.  I noticed going to update in companion it's update, going right back to lsc I saw the same error.  that is til I shut down my twist and it's never restarted.

Re: ThinkPad Yoga 14 - Lenovo Solution Center: showing strange messages

Earlier I posted the link to the update that will directly download. There is an update to Lenovo Solution Center that pretty much removes every single feature it had except for the hardware diagnostics scan. And the warranty countdown timer thing.
Anyway, I'm guessing it was because of something to do with using a windows 8 app in windows 10. I'd been running an outdated version the whole time. Why couldn't they just make one application that does everything, support, Lenovo updates, machine specific settings, everything? Shove all that System Update, Lenovo Settings, Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Solution Center into one thing. How hard could it be?

In any case, keep an eye on the Downloads page of the Yoga in Lenovo Support.

Cheers.
Have a good day.

I too have this issue. I think it may be that lenovo might have been built on windows 8/8.1

It is only a guess because I have no idea why it does that.

@WolfDenGamer sorry for a slow reply, but did you try updating Solution Center? The current version is like 3.3 something. I stopped getting messages like that after updating.

Have a good day.
