If you are shopping for a new version, check out amazon,  I go a legal version of 2016 office pro there for about 30 bucks.  They send you the key code, and you download the appropriate version from the m s store.In my experience, it is not an upgrade from 2010 to 2016   or any other version,  it is a new install  full prices apply,  others may  have a different  story.

Hey, speaking of outlook. If I upgrade from outlook 2010 with my outlook key. Do I have to pay for the upgrade?  I don’t care if I do. I am inquiring.  Thanks.

Your version number suggests you have some kind of subscription and Office 365 is the only recent offerings I know of.  So, if that is the case you probably just need to login to your Microsoft account (via the File menu using that account management option) and update.  I did just that about 2 weeks ago.

 

Compared to 2016, the latest Office has been working better in my experiences.  Even the calendar is becoming more and more useable.
