Great guide! I would share a personal experience though. I was stuck at r1024 for a while thinking it was the most recent. I finally got an email saying I needed to update. Every time I clicked "Check for Updates" it said I'm at the current version, which obviously isn't true. Only after allowing the client to stay open for a little while (a few minutes) and trying again, did it finally offer a software update (I have no network issues or hardware issues). I suspect that launching the client and immediately going for the "Check for Updates" was the issue. I imagine the "Check for Updates" button doesn't actually reach out and check for updates, but perhaps the client gets an update notification pushed to it after certain things have loaded (the store, etc.) and once that is there, the "Check for Updates" button will offer the update it was notified of. Pure speculation, but perhaps needs a rework to help keep users up to date. TLDR: If you click check for updates and don't see an update when you should, wait a few minutes and try again.
