Re: Microsoft May 19, 2019—KB4505056 (OS Build 17763.504)

In reply to a post by XRaySpeX:
@RobertoS:
  1. Do you have a manual “Check for updates” on the Settings / Windows Update page?
  2. Are you on Win 10 Home or Pro?
Sorry to have taken so long to respond to this. A combination of being quite busy and forgetting when not busy.

Both machines are on 1803 but they are different.

The "spare" is on (winver) Build 17134.706 and does not have that link. This machine is on Build 17134.766 and does have it, via Windows >> Settings >> Update & Security.

Both claimed to be up to date, "Checked yesterday", but have just received what looks like a minor update to 1803, nothing major. Both machines waiting to be restarted, having downloaded it.

I shall restart both now and break for a cuppa + ….

Well that is weird.

Both minor updates went OK, but this machine has updated from build .766 to .799 and the spare has updated from .706 to .766.

The spare still doesn't show the "Update & Security" link and the Check for updates within that, but because of that oddity I typed in Update in the Search for Settings box at the top of the Settings page and that immediately gave a drop-down list (probably) identical to the contents of the "Update & Security" list on this machine.

I'm still on 1803 version.

Unless you're not able to do something because your not on the latest version then I wouldn't worry about it.

In my experience a windows update can be held up for a number of reasons (that windows doesnt tell us).

On a previous update it held it up because a game launcher needed updating. I suspect that it might not have updated this time because I haven't updated my graphics driver in a while, I found a version that worked.

A friend of mine couldn't update Windows 10 to the latest Feature Update until he reset his BIOS to factory defaults.

My Lenovo laptop is still on 1803. It has tried three times (once last year and twice this year) updating to 1809 but it fails so backs out and keeps 1803.

I have a feeling mine is not working due to Veracrpyt drive encryption.

I have two other machines (Lenovo Think Server & Acer RL85) and these have both updated, however the updates on the 24th May killed Wi-Fi for both and required drivers re-installing. Microsoft's testing is very poor.

TBH, with all the problems coming to light with this May update, better off to leave be for a while until Ms pulls their finger out and get things sorted, that is if they do.

My main PC was updated to Win 10 1903 today skipping 1809. My other 1803 PC is not even offering it & warns that it is running a version soon out of support.
