Windows 10 21H1 Update Assistant Tool:

The Windows 10 version 21H1 is being pushed gradually, but if your device isn’t getting the new update through Windows Update, you can perform force install of the new version using the Update Assistant tool.

The Windows 10 Update Assistant is an official tool from Microsoft for devices that for some unknown reason are not getting the new update. This tool works similar to the Media Creation Tool, but with the difference that you can only do an in-place upgrade from an older Windows operating system.

Before starting, it is important to note that if your system is running Windows 10 version 20H2 (October 2020 Update) or version 2004 (May 2020 Update), the upgrade process will go through smoothly and faster if you use the Windows Update in Settings > Update & Security because the new featured update will install like a monthly cumulative update. Or else, if you decide to use the tool, you need to perform a complete reinstallation.

It is recommended that you should only consider choosing the Upgrade tool for installing a new version on a device running Windows 10 version 1909 (November 2019 Update), or an earlier release.
