This update includes files and resources that address issues that affect the update processes in Windows that may prevent important Windows updates from being installed. These improvements help make sure that updates are installed seamlessly on your device, and they help improve the reliability and security of devices that are running Windows.
[German]Microsoft has released several Windows updates over the past 10 days to fix the bug in the Event Viewer that occurred after installing the June 11, 2019 security updates. Here is a brief overview. Advertising
[German]After the updates KB4501375, KB4504360 and KB4506933 were tested in the release preview ring (see Windows 10: Update KB4509479, KB4509478, KB4509477, KB4509476 (06/26/2019)), the updates have now been generally released. Advertising
[German]As of June 20, 2019 Microsoft has re-released a new version of the reliability update KB4023057 for Windows 10, version 1507 to version 1803. Here are a few details about this update. Advertising

All systems prior to Windows 8 are affected, although there are updates for Windows XP to Windows 7 (see Critical update for Windows XP up to Windows 7 (May 2019)). Attackers who have successfully exploited this vulnerability can execute remote code on the target system. This includes installing programs, viewing, modifying, or deleting data, and creating new accounts with full user privileges.

[German]For the weekend some new from Windows 10 May 2019 update (version 1903). Microsoft wants to speed up the rollout by machine learning, there are updated installation images and the list of show stoppers is still long.
It would be interesting to ask to what extent the installation problem with USB media, which I had discussed in April in the blog post Windows 10 V1903: External USB storage as Upgrade blocker, is fixed. Microsoft writes on the status page that this is partially fixed with the June 2019 update. However, colleagues at deskmodder.de state that this problem has not yet been fixed. So you still have to either mount an ISO file under Windows 10 for an in-place upgrade, or burn a DVD for installation. A USB installation medium created with the Media Creation tool should cause problems.
[German]Short reminder for Windows 10 users who are still using older versions up to Windows 10 Version 1803. Be prepared that these machines will be upgraded to the Windows 10 May 2019 update. In addition, Windows Update will indicate when a machine is not ready for a feature update.
The information respectively the intension of Microsoft becomes clearer, if you have my older blog post Windows 10 May 2019 Update brings back Update control in mind. Microsoft had explained at that time that people should get more control when Windows 10 feature updates are installed. So you can delay the download and installation of the function updates by not clicking on the link within the Windows Update page.
No matter how you turn it around, the older Windows 10 versions up to version 1803 are now being planned by Microsoft for a forced upgrade to Windows 10 V1903 and will be updated as soon as possible. I had also explained this in the blog post Windows 10 V1803 threatens a forced update as of July 2019.
However, Microsoft has also stated (see Windows 10 May 2019 Update brings back Update control) that users will be automatically notified when a feature update is available for the machine and is recommended by Microsoft.

[German]Part 1 covers the topic that Windows 10 users who are still using older Windows 10 builds up to version 1803 have to expect a forced upgrade to Windows 10 May 2019 update. I have now run my own tests and would like to add some more insights and thoughts in part 2.
First of all, I will outline a few things that result from my experiments above. Yes, Microsoft is planning to upgrade Windows 10 systems to Windows 10 version 1903, which has been run out of support or its support will expire in November 2019. But the exciting question is: If I get a feature update, can I still choose when to install the feature update, and what else should I know?
However, this update addresses the Event Viewer bug introduced with June 2019 updates, because Windows 10 Version 1903 has not yet received an update (see Tip: PowerShell workarounds for June bug in Windows Event Viewer). All other Windows versions, however, have already received an update to fix the problem.
This update includes reliability improvements to Windows Update Service components in Windows 10, versions 1507, 1511, 1607, 1703, 1709, and 1803. It may also take steps to free up disk space on your device if you do not have enough disk space to install Windows updates.
This update includes files and resources that address issues that affect the update processes in Windows 10 that may prevent important Windows updates from being installed. These improvements help make sure that updates are installed seamlessly on your device, and they help improve the reliability and security of devices that are running Windows 10.
It should be noted that Microsoft does not distribute this update in corporate environments. What I also find strange are the Windows 10 versions 1507, 1511, 1607, 1703, 1709 and 1803 mentioned by Microsoft in the blog post to which this update applies. But Windows 10 versions 1507 through 1703 will only get updates in the Enterprise versions (see my blog post Patchday Windows 10 Updates (May 14, 2019)).
The update deeply interferes with the existing Windows 10 installation, cleans user-set update blockers, creates free disk space on the system drive if necessary, resets the network connection and more. More details about this cyclically released update can be found in the article Windows 10: Update KB4023057 re-released (02/14/2019). Another special feature is that this update is installed as an app and may cause installation errors (see my older blog post Windows 10: Update KB4023057 re-released (01/16/2019)).

In addition, Microsoft directly updated the Windows Update Client to improve its reliability. The update is performed on any Windows 10 that has no update delay configured (also applies to Enterprise and Pro, but not to the LTSC editions).
Microsoft strongly recommends that you install the latest Service Stack Update (SSU) for Windows 10 before the Cumulative Update (LCU). The SSUs improve the reliability of the update installation of cumulative updates. If Windows Update is used, the latest SSU (KB4504369) should be installed automatically.
Please note, however, that the Windows 10 versions 1703 and 1709 in the Home and Pro versions are no longer supported, only version 1803 will receive updates until November 2019. That means, the last mentioned updates above are only available for the Enterprise SKUs.
