    Cumulative update disappeared from the catalog (?!)


    I recently returned to the update catalog and entered the search "windows 10 cumulative". It gave the expected results, starting with update previews, followed by dynamic updates from Feb 14 (as of now the latest patch Tuesday), followed by the straight cumulative updates for Feb 14.

    They used to have a cumulative update for Windows 10 Version 21H2 for x64 based systems. I know this because I downloaded it and have the file.

    Now it's not showing up in the catalog. They only show the one for x86 based and ARM64 based.

    Has anyone else noticed the disappearance of this update from the catalog? Was there some bulletin from Microsoft about it? (Or is it really there and I'm just searching incorrectly?)

    - - - Updated - - -

    Quick update: If I add x64 to the search terms, the update shows up in the list.

    Does anybody know what's up with the update catalog? Will Microsoft ever provide a consistent way of knowing what search to use, to find what you need?

    I rely on the update's article in TenForums News to get a download link.
    e.g. KB5022834 CU - TenForums
    There's an article for every Cumulative update and almost every other update.

    If I had any trouble with that, I'd search the Catalog for the update's KB number - KB5022834

    I cannot answer your questions about what MS will do. I doubt MS can.

    All the best,

    Good to know!

    And the KB # seems like a good tactic, since it (for now, at least) returns all the packages associated with it.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
