Cumulative update allows Microsoft Windows 10 version 1809 users to carry out updates which were previously prevented

Microsoft has patched six known issues in the Windows 10, version 1903, in the KB4512941 optional cumulative update.

This cumulative update, a roll-up of several hotfixes, has solved issues that prevented many devices with incompatible Windows 10 from updating to the latest version. With the update, the safeguard holds will be in place until early September.

Several Windows 10 Server versions were hit by a known issue that came with the cumulative updates, monthly rollups, and security-only updates issued on 11 June. 

Users have to install the latest servicing stack update (SSU) for their operating system before installing the latest cumulative update (LCU), said the update announcement. 

"If you are using Windows Update, the latest SSU (KB4515530) will be offered to you automatically," it added.

Meanwhile, Microsoft has announced that the users of Windows 10 version 1809 can ignore the alerts for version 1903 update and do it later.

"We've had reports on 29 August that some customers running Windows 10, version 1809 (the October 2018 Update) have received notification to install the latest feature update (version 1903) early. Updating remains in your control," said an announcement at the Windows 10 message center.

"To install the update, you must select one of the following options: "Pick a Time", "Restart Tonight," or "Restart Now". If you are not ready to update at this time, simply dismiss the notification by clicking the arrow in the top right corner," it added.
