So I bought my laptop through ebay and it was working fine in the last few months but ever since the "creator update" it pops up windows reminding me that I have to activate it. I tried looking for solutions online but nothing helped. I extracted the activation key from the system, tried SLUI 3, but it's still the same. click here you can see it says it can't connect to the organisation's activation server. I have no idea what that means or why would it even want to do that.

Please help me.

Sounds like your laptop used to belong to a business, and so the key was registered through their servers as a key for multiple pc's for that business. When the update occurred it checked for the key and couldn't access their servers and so can't verify that your key belongs to anyone. You may now need to buy another windows version that belongs to you rather than the original owners of the laptop.
