Microsoft is blocking the Windows 10 May 2020 Update on lots of devices

Recommended Posts

Last month's Windows late update had real issues and is being withheld from systems with known issues.

Excerpt:

"Microsoft is preventing a large number of devices from updating to the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. While the software company released the update last week, Microsoft has quietly acknowledged that there are a number of known issues preventing the update from being installed on a variety of PCs.

Microsoft has a list of 10 issues it’s currently investigating, and 9 of them have resulted in a “compatibility hold” which stops the Windows 10 May 2020 Update from being installed via Windows Update. One issue involving unexpected errors or reboots with always-on, always-connected devices, affects devices like Microsoft’s Surface Pro 7 or Surface Laptop 3.

If you’ve been checking Windows Update for the May 2020 Update and not seeing anything, then it’s likely that your device is being blocked or throttled from updating. Microsoft has also added a warning to Windows Update over the weekend for devices that aren’t ready to be updated."

This is the message I have on my Updates screen:

The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is on its way. We’re offering this update to compatible devices, but your device isn’t quite ready for it. Once your device is ready, you’ll see the update available on this page. There’s nothing you need to do at this time.

I love the circumlocution..."your device isn't quite ready for it."  Real meaning "once again Microsoft failed to adequately test an update and serious harm will come to your device if you try to use it!"  🤕

Translation:  Once we're ready for your device. 

It's not like you're going to do anything to make your device "ready".

Is this it?

 I got a 0X00f0831 install error for KB4549951, on my HP W10 laptop; not just once several times. I don't think it ever installed, stops near 48% install.

Update: That update downloaded and installed finally.. Now the update page states in red " your computer is missing important security and quality updates", and will not install,  2020-05 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1909 for x64-based Systems (KB4556799) - Error 0x800f0831

Mine doesn't even try to install it. It just says when my system is ready for it it will then be installed. It doesn't download it either. One desktop is AMD chipset from the 5th gen Intel time period.

It's odd, this laptop gets to 100% install then  says cannot install. When I ran sfc/scannow the results said all files are OK. My desktop has installed that update, yet when I  used command prompt to run sfc/scannow, it found and corrected corrupted Windows files. I wonder what happened to my laptop  missing update files?

Nothing to do but wait and see what happens I guess.

Dennis the statement " your computer is missing important security and quality updates"  Yes it is in red, puzzles me. I had not turned that HP laptop on for perhaps 3-4 months. Like I said, I'll just wait for something to happen. There is an alternative, run a Refresh for W10, but I'd rather not entail the work involved to get back my old software and the entire slate of updates.

I don't have that statement any place that I can see it on my laptop?

I just updated a laptop that had not been turned on since October and that statement came up after "check for updates" in settings for me.   The updates installed and sometime in the next couple weeks I will install the feature update to 1909.

Me too (in progress while I'm posting).  Since I still have 7GB left on my hotspot plan, with a new billing cycle starting on June 9, I decided to update all the old stuff, including 1909. This for my old Thinkpad T410, which doesn't have an internal battery.

There's nothing in the 2004 update that I really need.  So until MS stops suggesting not to install the 2004 update on my other PCs,  I won't.

The 2004 upgrade/update went down last night without any problems on my HP laptop.  It did take forever but working great this morning.

They specifically mentioned my Surface Pro 7 as needing some firmware updates first. None of my systems have tried to download it yet. They all took the regular updates last Tuesday fine.
