Windows 10’s replace course of might be simplified and improved going ahead, as Microsoft has made the choice to incorporate servicing stack updates (or SSUs) as a part of its standard cumulative updates for the working system.
Beforehand, it was the case that these SSUs – which incorporate essential adjustments to the replace course of itself – had been put in individually, and that would doubtlessly result in a state of affairs the place a cumulative replace couldn’t be put in on a PC (as a result of the related SSU was a prerequisite, and wasn’t current).
With the SSU now mixed with Microsoft’s cumulative replace in a single package deal, that failure situation can now not happen, so this actually is sensible by way of streamlining the entire replace course of.
This can be a drawback extra more likely to be encountered by a system administrator overseeing a bunch of machines and coping with the complexities therein, though a single PC consumer might doubtlessly encounter this pitfall when manually putting in updates. (That stated, theoretically, if leaving Home windows 10 to cope with every thing itself, any related SSU ought to at all times be in place earlier than a cumulative replace is put in anyhow).
However, making certain that there’s one much less factor that would probably go mistaken is clearly a optimistic step ahead for Microsoft.
Strong and dependable updates
As Microsoft notes in its newest (September) SSU for Windows 10 May 2020 Update: “This replace makes high quality enhancements to the servicing stack, which is the part that installs Home windows updates. Servicing stack updates (SSU) makes certain that you’ve got a strong and dependable servicing stack in order that your gadgets can obtain and set up Microsoft updates.
“Moreover, this replace allows a single package deal design that comes with the servicing stack replace (SSU) into the most recent cumulative replace (LCU). Combining the SSU and LCU replace right into a single package deal supplies a extra seamless deployment and set up expertise.”
So following the set up of this explicit SSU, the brand new single package deal scheme of issues will come into impact going ahead.
