This laptop, has had "normal" upgrades. I never seen the upgrade icon that was "hidden" in the app stack on the right side of the task bar. I was looking to halt/exit an app that keeps trying to run and slow down the booting. So far, I have not seen it on this laptop. So, maybe the Win10 "professional" laptop shows up first, or not. This laptop is a Win10 "home" version - Win7 professional upgraded to Win10's version, and Win7 Home went to Win10's version of that type of system.

It came out in August, IIRC.  I didn't have any problem with it here.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm running Win10 and Ubuntu 14.04. I don't
believe I've yet been offered the Anniversary Upgrade, but when I am, I
will proceed very cautiously (or not at all).

This is not about LO but about MS crashing both the Windows file
system and GRUB.

If you have not run the Windows 10 Anniversary upgrade, you might want
to consider it as a new OS install that crashes GRUB and messes with
the Windows partition where it need major repair.

Yesterday, I upgraded my older DELL laptop that runs both Windows 10
and Ubuntu 16.04.

Win10 gave me a icon for the Anniversary Upgrade Assistant.  IT took
hours for the download and verify it.  During the install, at about
30% complete, the install required a reboot.  GRUB errors was all I
got.  I had to use a boot repair disk twice to get the laptop to be
able to boot at all.  When I was able to boot to Windows, it took
about 20 minutes for Windows to auto-fix the file system. Then it took
6 more hours to finish the install.  It took less time to install the
Win7 to Win10 upgrade, than it took the Anniversary upgrade.

Yes, MS messes with the GRUB system when it gets install alongside of
Ubuntu, but it never caused so much trouble as it did yesterday
afternoon to late evening.  6+ hours to install the upgrade and fix
the laptop so it would boot again, was not expected.
