    Edit: Need to correct the above. After looking at the "Installed Updates" in WuMgr, KB5000802 is in fact listed. So, that update must have installed during the update to 2004 from 1909. Don't see KB5001567 listed anywhere, so I'll be installing that one.
    KB5001567 CU Windows 10 v2004 build 19041.868 and v20H2 19042.868
    - removes flash player

    KB5000802 CU Windows 10 v2004 build 19041.867 and v20H2 19042.867
    - some have experienced issues. Homer712has commented on this. And as said, be cautious about randomly updating to the latest peril - er - I mean build.

    Thank God for Macrium Reflect. I'm back on 1909, via a "Full Image" taken on Sunday the 7th. Right before all this madness started. I don't know that all this "work from home" is working out for Microsoft. Either that, or they've just given up on any measure of quality control.

    Sure, they got that update wrong. Just as they make a good number of serious mistakes.

    The best thing is hang back on updates- stay behind, control your updates- read the news.

    Plenty of ways repeatedly described here on how to do that.

    @Homer712,

    I am exactly in the same situation as you are/were. I run v1909 and I will upgrade to v2004. The only diference is that I simply postpone quality updates for 26 days - so not employing Sledgehammer nor playing with WuMgr.

    And yes, I will have my Macrium Reflect image of the entire system verified before starting the upgrade.

    I will employ Rufus to flash Win2004.iso to a pen drive and do the upgrade.

    So, if I may ask, have you succeeded? Do you have any recommendation to share?

    Thank you!

    @Sandro, if I have any advice for you it would be to wait until at least next month's CU due on April 13th. This month's CU released on March 9th is nothing short of a total train wreck. What will happen if you upgrade right now is that the process downloads the latest CU for 2004 during the install. So, you'll be stuck with KB5000802. MS has now released three patches for this CU, and pulled the latest one just this morning. Waiting until after next month's CU will give MS the time needed to hopefully sort this mess out.

    As I said above, thanks to MR I'm back on 1909 and via Sledgehammer have been able to hold off any updates later than those issued back in February. The Defender definition updates come through Sledgehammer just fine, so at least Defender is up to the latest Security Updates.

    Hi @Homer712,

    Thanks for your reply. And many thanks for saving me from embarking on what will be a train wreck. (*)
    I will postpone not only the upgrade of the host itself but also on my virtual machines.

    I will give a try on Sledgehammer. To be honest, I really have never heard of it before. Living and learning!

    Again, thanks @Homer712 !
