Known issues in this update
Virtual Machines running Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter (smalldisk en-us, Zh-cn) with the June 2019 image may fail to install the July 9, 2019 security update.
We are working on regenerating these images and estimate they will be available after July 17, 2019 (PT).
If you have not installed the June or July 2019 Windows security updates, please wait until the new image is available on Azure Marketplace.
If you have existing Virtual Machines (VMs) running the June 2019 update, we recommend updating your resources using the 'sfc /scannow' tool in an elevated command prompt on the affected virtual machines to continue to receive security updates. Instructions for how to use this tool can be found here.
