Just got my first EVER undoing update message. The system rebooted into Safe Mode. Now I have something to keep me busy ;)

So far one worked and one failed.

The second time it completed the install. Something a little strange is I installed KB4514147 on Oct. 3rd. Today, the view updates still showed it installing on that date but the uninstall updates window shows it as installing today, Oct. 8th.

Maybe the prior update did not completely install and the new update had to wait until it did..

Oh well, I will see how the other 5 systems go..

"Pretty anticlimactic. "
Hmm. Well, I was finally tempted and grabbed the ISO. Interesting experience. I first ran a clean install. Installed in about 10 to 15 minutes, but, everything OK except a totlallly empty Right clcik function - lots of little boxes bur no text! Updated the graphics, went back to earlier graphics - no change.
So, next step. Installed keeping all my data - Prefect!
But, your quote, On examination, I think the whole project looks pretty "antclimatic"
I ran it alongside an identical laptop, with my working current Windows 10. I could not dtect any difference in contents or performance. Lot of guys in Microsoft being over paid , I fear.
Certainly, if the rumours are true, I will be opting for the release which will not be subjected to updates.

A little off topic, but, fwiw,
Under many recommendations from posts, I have recently tried Linux Mint and, running currently, Zorin - a Windows Look alike.
No complaints, a little different to work with, but I am not seeing anything startlingly different from what I can achieve in Windows.

Pretty anticlimactic.
October 8, 2019—KB4517389 (OS Build 18362.418)
Still on 1903 with 1909 nowhere in sight. Bump in build from .388 to .418
SOURCE: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4517389/windows-10-update-kb4517389
This is the monthly CU (cumulative update) NOT 1909...

As far as I'm aware 1909 hasn't even been released to those on the Insider rings yet, except for some on the Insider Preview rings.

I've not seen any official announcement of it's official release date, just a lot of rumours...

You're not on the Insider Preview ring are you?

I don't think anyone in this thread has suggested it is the 1909 release?

From Trouble's previous posts, I presume he is, indeed, on the Preview ring - not certain.

OK...

I guess I must have misread this then...

Actually both my machines that are currently running 1909 (18363) are still in the Insider Program.
One is on the "Release Preview Ring" and the other is on the "Slow Ring" both received this C.U.
However, my primary machine is still running the 1903 (18362.xxx) version and build like everyone else and this thread was just a comment regarding the anticipated move to 1909 as a general release, which many of us had hoped would be a product of this past "Update Tuesday"

Yes..... I figured that out, completely by accident, as I posted above.
I was preparing that post when you posted your comment.
Rebooting now to bask in the glory that is 1909.... FINALLY!

Already experiencing some hangs or freezing.
Had to restart Windows Explorer shell, twice to get back control.
It happened while playing with that annoying hamburger menu flyout that happens when you hover over the power, settings, etc., icons on the start menu.
Guess I'll try a couple reboots and see if that helps.

Working on mine....holy crap it's taking a long time. I see everybody has been reporting 10 - 15 minutes time lines. My initial CU update took 15 minutes and now doing 1909.

Also noticing that the MSRT (Malicious Software Removal Tool) does not seem to appreciate the fact that it has been successfully installed 4 (four) times now.
