Office 365 (Office 2016) not updating

If your Office 365 software (Office 2016 SKU) is stuck on a certain version number and are experiencing an issue where Office 365 doesn’t update or won’t update – like mine was (on two machines), I managed to find a fix.

Go to the registry (only if you have the Office 2016 version of Office 365) and change the value of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\ClickToRun\Configuration\CDNBaseUrl to http://officecdn.microsoft.com/pr/492350f6-3a01-4f97-b9c0-c7c6ddf67d60

Just in case, back this value up first.

Then go back in and try to update. From within Office, go to File > Account >Update Options > Update Now http://screencast.com/t/l2MB1bdMw

For your reference, this is the location that I had originally http://officecdn.microsoft.com/pr/b8f9b850-328d-4355-9145-c59439a0c4cf  

This is the version number I had prior:
