      Well, the best fits ‘Microsoft Misere’, but ‘Microsoft Mist’ fit also (and Mist doesn’t mean English mist / fogg 😉 … it’s more muck)

      The word you are thinking of is:
      Schlimmerverbesserung:   A fix for something that turns out to be worse.

      Microsoft should replace blue screen with “Don’t worry, be happy!”

      As some of us might experience a certain malicious joy at yet another bungled bundled patch from Microsoft making a disimprovement at the expense one of their own products, the following German words do have relevant eloquent translations:

      • Verschlimmbesserung: Disimprovement
      • schadenfreude: malicious joy, pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune.
      • die Pfuscherei: the bungling

      However, in the English language the word bungle actually seems most appropriate, as a verb:

      • carry out (a task) clumsily or incompetently, leading to failure or an unsatisfactory outcome.
      • make or be prone to making many mistakes.

      and as a noun:

      • a mistake or failure, typically one resulting from mismanagement or confusion.

      Of course the military term snafu is also appropriate…

      It not German, But if you remember the story about it, It seems to fit. That word

      Is the patch trouble becoming a huge iceberg?

        Hmm, Hindenburg would be the German equivalent, I guess…

      It’s not German, but the term Dumpster Fire does seem to fit here.

      On my all-Intel NUC, the 1803 (Pro, 64-bits) November Updates worked perfectly well. (Updated Sunday, Dec.2, 2018.) We are still talking about the November CU, aren’t we?

        November, yes, but on a Surface Book 2, not a NUC
