  • Minor problems with this week’s Win10 versions 1903/1909 and 2004 cumulative updates

    Mayank Parmar reports on Windows Latest:

    When installing Windows 10 KB4565351 (v1903/1909) and KB4566782 (v2004), users are saying that they are being greeted with unhelpful error messages, including 0x800f0988, 0x800f081f, and 0x800f08a.

    The most-reported error code is 0x800f081f and it could be related to missing files in the WinSXS folder that stores different copies of DLL and system files.

    [The Win10 version 1903/1909 cumulative update] is also breaking audio for some users and there are reports of Blue Screen of Death with “SYSTEM THREAD UNHANDLED EXCEPTION” error on Feedback Hub.

    I haven’t seen a lot of reports of those problems, but they’re irritating nonetheless.

    See Parmar’s article for descriptions and workaround.
