SSUs improve the reliability of the update process to mitigate potential issues while installing the LCU and applying Microsoft security updates.  For general information about SSUs, see Servicing stack updates and Servicing Stack Updates (SSU): Frequently Asked Questions

If you are using Windows Update, the latest SSU (KB5014024) will be offered to you automatically. To get the standalone package for the latest SSU, search for it in the Microsoft Update Catalog.
