I used the windows update and that directed me to the windows 10 upgrade assistant. The update seems to be going well, downloads it, verifies it, and starts installing it... until 74% then the window changes back to "We see your running an older version of windows.. do you want to upgrade" window, which is the same window when you first load up the upgrade assistant.
The only thing I can think it might be is I have a usb cable from my monitor to the pc to give me usb connections on the monitor. This is the only reason I can think of.
Anyways I'm not rushing it. I'll see if this issue comes up for anyone else.
