The Solution:
1. Open the Teams Client application

  • Start > Type the word Teams > Press enter

2. Click your profile picture in the upper right corner
3. Click the button: Check for Updates

Look close for Messages in Teams

Note: Teams will display a few messages to you to let you know when the updates are complete.
