In November, Patchday, Microsoft re-released the "October 2018 update" for Windows 10. The new operating system version, also known as version 1809, has to eliminate some of the serious errors that led to the end of delivery of the new version in early October. Windows Server 2019 is also available again.
Like the Microsoft CEO of John Cable in one The blog post promises that distribution through Windows Update will be slower this time than version 1803. It is intended to more accurately evaluate error messages and telemetry data to quickly resolve any problems.
Version 1809 is now installed with a markup number of 17763.107, which Microsoft tests for a two week beta test in Windows Insider. In addition, the total update from today's Patchday will increase the construction number to 17763.134. The new version is now released in waves using Windows Update. Install packages can also be downloaded with Media Creation Tool 1809er.
Chaos with a statement
On October 2, Microsoft released the release to the general public by releasing the last beta test phase "Release Preview" – a phase that was clearly identified to identify problems with the upgrade installation from the current stable version to the new version. In a few days, data loss reports were distorted, forcing Microsoft to recall the new version. Later, more errors were added, such as inconsistency in unpacking Zip archives, and it became clear that Microsoft either knew in advance or at least knew that beta testers' error messages were properly evaluated.
Now there are serious cases of errors. Those who do not want to rely on it and use Windows 10 Pro or higher can automatically delay the automatic install of the new edition automatically within a few months. How to do this is one of the most frequently asked questions about updating features for Windows 10.
