Microsoft has released the Windows 10 October(or November) 2018 Update again today after being forced to pull the update down due to a number of bugs.
The main bug which caused the pull-down of the update was users reporting about their files missing after applying the October update.
Microsoft did release the update to the beta testers of the Windows Insiders program and after a month of testing, the company has rolled the update publicly.
John Cable, the director of program management for Windows servicing and delivery said that:
“In addition to extensive internal validation, we have taken time to closely monitor feedback and diagnostic data from our Windows Insiders and from the millions of devices on the Windows 10 October Update, and we have no further evidence of data loss.”
After testing and fixing the issue, Microsoft is still taking somewhat of a cautious approach with this update and this update will hit Windows Update for a small number of Windows 10 users.
Users will have to check for the updates in order to install the update and even after that if there is an issue such as app compatibility then update will not appear as explained by John Cable about this cautious approach;
“If we detect that your device may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, we will not install the update until that issue is resolved, even if you ‘Check for updates,’ so you avoid encountering any related problems.”
This update has been a disaster and the company faced a lot of issue due to this update but let’s hope that this update will work as expected without any major bugs, otherwise it may be another major issue for the company if any such bug was to be reported again by the users.
