    Good idea. But not right I have two 970 and one 969 Problem still exists exactly the same on all three. It's getting annoying now, clearly world wide. BTW now it is GMT 8:15 AM (4:15 PM in Japan where I'm living currently.)
    It's been just about 3 days now.

    Sure, if we remember to manually update Defender, then run WU so it says, "Up to date." after updating defender manually there is no harm that I can imagine. But many people don't have a clue about this. Sure enough, my wifes laptop I checked a few hours ago. No update and loads of error messages since March 30 late (Japan time) There is no way she would have known. Like literally millions of others who 100% rely on MS automation.

    This doesn't bode well for up coming Creators update, if those folks at MS can't even fix this! In three days and counting. Actually I'm quite appualed by this because of the time line. Stuff happens, but shouldn't take days to fix one simple but major security flaw. Bad. Very bad indeed. And just when I thought MS were starting to get things together, this in excuse able incompetence occurs. Apologies guys, for the mini rant, I'm a feeling annoyed about this now and need a beer.

    Finally, this thread has been a big source of relieve for me with plenty of people updating status regularly. This is a good forum. Thank you to all who posted status and ideas. Keep em coming!!

    random thought
    So many different build versions experiencing this update phenomena, seems unlikely to me that it is related to the Creators Update and more likely a general Windows Update issue, specifically affecting Defender.
    Just a theory

    still not completely working all green with one caveat Definitions out of date But is still protected? something is wrong says its up to date now but when i run update i get the error msg (not that YOU are uptodate) ? so i still don't have the warm and fuzzy that things are OK

    presently, I try to update from inside Defender, it says it has failed, but if I just wait 50-60 seconds, the screen refreshes all by itself to the version number that previously indicated failure.
    kind of quirky, it seems to indicate failure, while updating at the same moment

    It's not been affecting my machines but am absolutely disgusted with ms over this. They have been dropping cumulative updates left right and centre and breaking stuff all over the shop. Now this. Unfortunately they can't seem to be relied upon to get updates right. Maybe if they slowed down and stopped throwing them down the pipe at such a rate and actually stopped to do a bit of QA testing now and then we'd see less of this.

    I installed Eset Nod32 for now, I just don't trust Defender right now. I can't even update in the Defender program itself anymore.

    I just checked 2 other desktops we have here and neither is having this problem. They are both Windows10 Home and are getting the definition updates normally thru WU. Very strange.

    Are we very sure that MS is aware of this problem?

    The same report was returned on the other machine. This has to be a one of those "Windows Update" that broke "Windows Update" !



    Looks like its fixed, but won't know until another update comes thru.
