Back in October, Microsoft has announced and later paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update over reports of missing files, and after resolving the issues, the company has finally resumed the update via media. The update will be rolled out in batches, meaning it will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.
In addition to extensive internal validation, the company has taken time to closely monitor feedback and diagnostic data from the Windows Insiders and from the millions of devices on the Windows 10 October Update and found no further evidence of data loss. The company says that the update will be available via the Windows Update. If it detects that your device may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, the update will not be installed unless the issue is resolved.
Microsoft is planning to add a Windows update status dashboard in the coming year to provide more information on any issues that lead to update blocks. The Windows 10, version 1809 is now available through Windows Server Update Services, Windows Update for Business and System Center Configuration Manager’s phased deployment. It is also available for commercial customers.
