Known Issue

You receive the following error message two times during the update installation process:
Microsoft SharePoint Foundation administration tool has stopped responding

However, the installation process is not affected when this issue occurs. To continue the installation process, click the Close the program button in the error message dialog box. Currently, Microsoft does not have a fix for this issue.

Issue that this update fixes

Assume that you migrate some activity types (for example, Ask Me About) from a SharePoint Server 2010 server to a SharePoint Server 2013 server. You enable the Activity Feed timer job to generate activity feed events when users update their profile properties. In this situation, the activity feed events are not successfully generated on the My Newsfeed page in SharePoint Server 2013.

Note This issue occurs only on a default tenant that has on-premises deployments for SharePoint Server 2013.
