Microsoft released a new update as part of its monthly patches Tuesday night. However, many users reported that the new update failed to install on some of the devices. This issue could be caused due to the fact that there are multiple versions of the same update. Some users even found that the older version of the update worked better. To fix this problem, you need to check whether the device is running the latest update or not. If it is, uninstall the previous update and reinstall the latest one. If you still cannot successfully install the update, try uninstalling the update completely and re-downloading it again. Then select the update and press Uninstall. After that, restart the computer and install the update again.

Frequently Asked Questions
I’d rather keep using the version of Windows I already have. Do I have to upgrade?
No, you don’t have to switch to Windows 10. But it’s important to note that all support for Windows 7 has ended, and most support for Windows 8 will end on January 10, 2023. Because of this, we suggest moving to Windows 10 if you can.
At work, I use a PC with Windows. Can I get Windows 10?
Yes, but if you use a Professional or Enterprise version of Windows at work, the IT department may need to install the upgrade for you.
