Adding to the hardships of faulty cumulative updates, Windows 10 latest October update is reported to have several issues. Users complain about the inability of installing the October update, which was released on the 13th of this month. While the regular workarounds failed to install, the already installed systems are facing issues in the audio, printer, and even causing BSOD!
Windows 10 October Update Issues
Microsoft has indeed been plagued with bad luck since the beginning of this year, as every cumulative update it rolled out has more bugs than fixes. We’ve seen issues of disk defragmentation, system crashes, unresponsiveness of apps, driver failures, etc. Some have reported to Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) in several updates, barring them from working ultimately.
While Microsoft tried fixing such reported issues with new monthly updates, they’re sadly coming with more bugs plaguing the system. Adding to these, the newly rolled out October update is now reported to have more issues than any fixes. Users in Reddit, Microsoft’s support forums, etc have complained about various issues before and after installing the update.
It’s unknown how widespread the issues are currently, but seems serious enough to blame Microsoft yet again. Users complained that they are unable to install the new update. Previous fixes like uninstalling and reinstalling also didn’t work. Further, some have tried installing manually with the Windows Media Creation Tool, which tool had failed.
While we hope this to be addressed soon, users who have installed have different complaints. Installing the October updates, KB4579311 and KB4577671 have caused issues with printers, audio, unresponsive File Explorer, and even BSOD. Since it’s just a week, Microsoft hasn’t acknowledged any of these issues yet, and may soon take care of when reported widely.
