      I am not seeing the latest SSU, KB4509095, being offered through WU.   I am only being offered the following which I have hidden in wushowhide:

      KB890830

      KB4507419 – 2019-07 Net Framework update

      KB4507469 -2019-07 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 version 1809

      Do I need to download and install the lastest SSU from Windows Catalog/ TY for any info!!

      The SSUs are bundled with the Cumulative Updates in WIN10 and do not show up as separate patches in the Windows Update queue. They WILL show up in the installed updates list after the CU is installed.

          Au contraire, what @pkcano says is precisely correct.

          From the article:

          Servicing stack updates must ship separately from the cumulative updates because they modify the component that installs Windows updates.

          That simply isn’t true. MS has devised an updating protocol that requires separate updates to the updating software – it’s old and inflexible. Other operating systems have no such requirement.

          If you use Windows Update, you don’t need to be concerned because Windows Update installs the Servicing Stack Update prior to installing the latest cumulative update — sometimes requiring multiple reboots.

          If you don’t use Windows Update, you need to take care to manually install the Servicing Stack Update.

            So “ship separately” is correct (and “bundled with” is not).

              “Bundled with” does not mean “incorporated into.” A “bundle of sticks” does not mean there is only one stick.

              The Servicing Stack is a part of the bundle that comes with the CU, and it is not listed as a separate patch in the Windows Update queue (in the same manner of speaking pcicleanstalecache was “bundled” with the Win7 Rollups). Windows Update manages the installation order. The Servicing Stack does, however, show up as an Installed Update after the monthly updates are done indicating that it is, in fact, a separate patch.

              Manual patching is different. If you are installing updates manually, the SSU, the CU and any other updates have to be downloaded and installed separately (the SSU installed exclusively and first, then the other updates)
