Windows 10: Windows Update Alert

    Windows Update Alert


    This morning on checking for update I received the following alert:
    <Your device is at risk because it's out of date and missing important security and quality updates. Let's get you back on track so Windows can run more securely. Select this button to get going:>
    The only button available is to check for updates, and doing so result in to giving the same warning again.

    Well, it's correct - you are out of date.
    Your build number is the one for January 3, 2018 - KB4056892 (OS Build 16299.192)

    Looks like your windows update hasn't been working these past three months. The first step in trying to fix that is to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter.

    Troubleshoot Problems in Windows 10 with Troubleshooters

    If that doesn't fix your problem, then see this tutorial.

    The second fix did reset WU. But updates fail to install:

    Note that the past few updates did install but gave same message:

    I'll download that update manually and see if it does install that way.

    Manual install successful as per Control Panel. But receiving a similar failed message, saying it need a restart to complete.
    Done that with no avail. Same need a restart to complete showing up.
    KB4074588 kept giving the same messages. until excluded with wushowhide.
    As you can notice from control panel WU files those updates are there but no installing date showing.
    BTW Still showing OS build as per my first post.

    The Control Panel is the definitive source, if it says 'installed' then it is. Run Winver to check, KB4093112 puts the build up to 16299.371.

    Reporting a failed install in Update History has been a known issue for cumulative updates for a while now...
    Even though the update was successfully installed, Windows Update incorrectly reports that the update failed to install. To verify the installation, select Check for Updates to confirm that there are no additional updates available.

    You can also type About your PC in the search box on your taskbar to confirm that your device is using the expected OS build.

    Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release
    Cumulative Update KB4093112 Windows 10 v1709 Build 16299.371 - Apr. 10

    The perpetual 'a restart is required' is another matter though. A few other have reported this problem. In this thread a cure was to uninstall the update then reinstall it.

    Tried @usikpa #78 fix. It did help to get upgraded to OS build 16299.248 then 334
    Now KB4093112 is taking so many restarts to update. Windows keep restarting before all stages are completed. Started 19 of 19, one by one now down to 2 of 13.
    The funny thing is that now on WU settings
    KB4093112 check as installed, but not on Control Panel.
    Spent the best of Sunday working on it. Well it was a miserable day outside so I guess I should not complain.
    I may calling it a day, go to sleep and start all over tomorrow.
    I'll keep you posted.
    Thanks.

    Finally after a ridiculous amount of restarts, check for update on WU then restart, mission complete.
    KB4093112 shows both on Control Panel and on Settings. OS build is now 16299.371.

    Thanks again @Bree for the help and the link.
    Thanks @usikpa #78 that somehow got the ball rolling (Cumulative Update KB4093112 Windows 10 v1709 Build 16299.371 - Apr. 10.)

    I'm not sure if I should mark the thread solved as it was a miss and hit for almost 24 hours. Too long to explain what I had to do.

    usikpa's solution in post #78, particularly the 'trustedinstaller start= auto' part seems to have been the key. I've not suffered your problems, but I've found other threads where that turned out to be the cure.

    Well done, now you can relax - at least, until the Spring Creators Update
