    Conflicting Update Message (12/10/2017)

    Today (12/10/2017) there was an OS update for Win 10: 2017-11 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1709 for amd64-based Systems (KB4051963)

    After the almost hour long download/install process I went to check the notification status (All Settings/Update & Security/View Installed Update History). Message says "Failed to install". According to All Settings/System/About the OS installed is version 16299.98. I did an additional Restart to see if that would make any difference and it did not.

    Furthermore, when I "Check for Updates" I get the message "Your device is up to date." And everything seems to be working normally.

    So, I am confused about the "Failed to install" message. Any advice for this? Thanks.

    I wouldn't worry too much, the way windows updates are set up, they are designed to show the last 5 notifications for updates and that's it, it may be already installed and shows as a different name dependent on your hardware, for example:

Name:	image.png

    As you can see, the update was already installed on my system 2 days prior to the failed update.
