If you are running Windows 10 1511 build 10586.11 then you can get your system updated to Windows 10 1511 build 10586.14.
To do this you need to install an updated Cumulative Update (KB3120677) via Windows Update. After installing the update, in the Start Search type in winver and hit the enter key to get the following:
The November update, version 1511 aka build 10586, is now available again via MCT .Earlier Microsoft pulled out the November update version 1511 build from MCT.
see:Media Creation Tool will not update latest Windows 10 release version 1511
Why did Microsoft pull out MCT earlier?
Microsoft did that as the following four settings under Privacy Settings which, if turned off by the user, were set to their default ‘on’ setting after applying the update:
- Let apps use my advertising ID
- Turn on SmartScreen Filter for web content
- Let apps run in the background
- Sync with devices
Now everything is fixed.

Very strange and unusual decision from Microsoft. The Media Creation Tool which was loaded with the latest Windows 10 Version 1511 will no longer make any November update ( latest version 1511) ,media creation tool instead installs the July 2015 (build 10240).
So if you use media creation tool it will stick to July 2015 (build 10240) instead of taking you to the latest build. You can still use this tool for installing or updating to Windows 10 and then get the latest version via Windows Update.
You will get November update only through Windows Update.
