#Windows10 #Windows10Update – Issues with Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4016871 : Microsoft rolled out new cumulative updates to Windows 10 versions a few hours ago, and now that most people have already received it, we can tell whether the company managed to deliver a smooth install experience or not.
And by the looks of things, there are many more users out there who claim that cumulative updates installed just fine on their systems, though there are also some reports of issues that might be hit by the version aimed at systems running the Creators Update.
Windows 10 cumulative update KB4016871 is shipped to PCs running version 1703, and at this point, there are only a few claims of failed installs, though we’re almost sure this is the typical issue that causes the install to get stuck at a certain percentage level during the process.
In other words, if the install appears to freeze when deploying this cumulative update, just give it some time and the process should complete correctly after a while. We’ve heard people saying that it can take anywhere from a couple of minutes to 2 hours, so patience is really a virtue this time.
“Nope, DISM is yet to be fixed”
Furthermore, it appears that DISM is still broken, despite the huge number of reports coming from users even before the Creators Update, and this new cumulative update doesn’t make any difference.
There is also one user on reddit complaining that Start menu live tiles have been reset after installing this cumulative update, with search results also becoming unclickable due to an unknown bug.
Some say the update failed to install at the first attempt, but then completed successfully, while others say the process gets stuck at “Getting Windows Ready,” though it’s important to note that this a problem reported for the cumulative update shipped for Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
At this point, however, the number of issues reported by users installing cumulative updates is significantly smaller than in the previous months, so with the Creators Update, it appears that Microsoft has actually managed to successfully address the majority of problems.
We’ll continue to keep an eye on Microsoft’s feedback channels and provide more information should other cumulative update issues be reported.
