    Probably you need to install updates, particularly KB3036140.

    Since you cannot use Start menu to go to Windows Update, follow this method given by Insider Hub.......

    Checking for updates may fix this problem. To check for updates without the Start menu, do the following:
    1. Select the Internet Explorer icon.

    2. Type http://update.microsoft.com into the address bar and select Enter.

    3. If you are prompted to run a control, click Yes.

    4. This should bring up the Check for updates window. Install updates.

    • If no update is available, or the available updates don’t fix the issue, restart the device–this should make the Start menu appear. To reboot without using the Start menu:

      1. Hold down the Windows key and select L to lock the device. Swipe up or select Enter to open the sign in screen. Select the Power icon on the log in screen to restart the computer.            
        OR

      2. Hold down the Windows key and select R to bring up a command prompt. In the prompt, type shutdown –r to restart.
