Release Date:

4/21/2020

Version:

OS Build 17763.1192

IMPORTANT We have been evaluating the public health situation and understand the impact this is having on many of our customers. To help ease some of the burdens customers are facing, we are going to delay the scheduled end of service date for the Home, Pro, Pro Education, Pro for Workstations, and IoT Core editions of Windows 10, version 1809 to November 10, 2020. This means devices will receive monthly security updates only from May to November. The final security update for these editions of Windows 10, version 1809 will be released on November 10, 2020 instead of May 12, 2020.

For more information about the various types of Windows updates, such as critical, security, driver, service packs, and so on, please see the following article.

This doesn't apply to long-term servicing editions.

Workaround

After installing KB4493509, devices with some Asian language packs installed may receive the error, "0x800f0982 - PSFX_E_MATCHING_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND."

Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.

Any website that uses a port listed in the Fetch Standard specification under bad ports or port blocking might cause this issue.

This issue is resolved in KB4577069.

How to get this update
