Due to the fact that a great part of Microsoft’s cumulative updates failed to install or caused a number of issues when deployed, the release of Windows 10 did not appear to be much successful.
Considering these issues, many users out there choose not to install any updates when they are released or to keep the auto-updates off until others install them and make sure that everything is working properly.
However, since the Creators Update has been released in April, the cumulative updates have been performing much better. Besides, the number of issues experienced by the Windows 10 users have decreased substantially to the point where almost every user is capable of installing them properly.
This month, the rate of the cumulative updates which have been installed correctly exceeded 99%, while the complaints regarding failed installs or issues caused by these patches, can be hardly seen.
The issues that users are complaining mostly about with this month’s cumulative updates are KB4025339, KB4025342, and KB4025344, regarding their long installation.
In fact, sometimes the cumulative updates really take too long to install – up to an hour in some cases, however, in 99% of the cases, the installation process is completed perfectly fine.
Actually, this is one of the issues which Microsoft also should address with cumulative updates, as the installation process still turns out to be quite inconsistent.
There are users who say that the updates get installed properly in a few minutes, while others, complain that it takes up to an hour for completing the process. So, Microsoft should certainly improve this problem with the new Patch next Tuesday.
In any case, the good news about users is that despite all the issues reported so far, Microsoft has managed to fix them. Now it’s all about performance.
