If you go to Settings, Updates and do a manual check for updates, what happens?

Have you shutdown and/or restarted your system recently. I had a system I had not started for a while and it took me several manual update tries and several reboots to get that system to catch up with the updates.

So you know, if you are looking at Defender updates you may not actually see anything happen except for the install window closing.

OK
or UEFI disk are incopatible wirh windows update
Obviously not as evidenced by your first statement
NOW.....
If I understand correctly you are already running "Windows 10" and based on my limited ability to interpret your problem, I'm guessing Build 10240, since you seem to be indicating that you are unable to update to the November Build 1511 (10586). So if that is correct then just download the latest ISO from here
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/techbench
Choose Windows 10, the first item in the first drop down (not single language at the bottom)
Next choose your language and your bit version (32 or 64 bit to match your system architecture or in the case of an upgrade, to match your currently installed version of Windows).
That will provide an ISO that will upgrade, repair (or clean install) either or both Windows 10 Pro and Home.
Once you have downloaded the ISO you can use ImgBurn to burn it to a DVD http://imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
OR
Rufus to burn it to a USB ThumbDrive http://rufus.akeo.ie/
When you've created the installation media then you simply launch setup.exe from the media from within your current version of Windows to perform the in-place upgrade.
In the case of upgrading from an earlier version of Windows 10 as seems to be your situation.... You can simply double click the ISO file and that will mount it as a virtual drive, where you can select and run setup.exe.

I would also suggest that in addition to a file backup you might want to consider performing a disk image.

Personally, I would go with UEFI, as it offers a more robust interface with some added features and is required if you intend to use GPT as your disk schema.
