Windows 10 version 1903: update blocks and problems

Microsoft released the final version of Windows 10 version 1903, the update of May 2019, at the end of May 2019. The release replaces version 1809 of Windows 10 and will last longer because Windows 10 19H2. The second feature update of 2019 will be just a cumulative update and not a full feature update.

The new feature update for Windows 10 has had its share of problems. But it was not as bad as updating the 1809 version of Windows 10 that Microsoft had to perform for about six weeks due to major problems.

Microsoft revealed in June that the new update was available to all administrators who performed manual update checks but did not point out that there were many update blocks that prevented the upgrade to the new version of Windows 10.

As of July 11, 2019, some of the oldest extension blocks have been erected. The Publication Information page of the function update lists three problems marked as resolved. Systems that were previously affected by these problems are no longer blocked to find the update through Windows Update.

The three questions that are resolved are

Systems with external USB devices and memory cards are no longer blocked to install Windows 10 version 1903.

The problem of Dolby Atmos and Dolby Access has been resolved.

The problem of the Dynabook Smartphone link application has been solved.

Microsoft confirms that the retention of the update is no longer in place and points out that it can take up to 48 hours before the affected devices can find the new feature update when administrators run manual checks for updates in Windows Update.

This problem has been resolved and the safeguard retention has been removed. Keep in mind that it may take up to 48 hours before you can upgrade to the 1903 version.

It may take until July 13, 2019 before the new update appears in Windows Update. The update appears as an optional update if the device runs Windows 10 version 1809. If an earlier version of Windows 10 is installed, it can be installed immediately without giving the administrator any option (through Deskmodder).

New problems

Some Windows 10 version 1903 devices may enter a restart notification loop after installing KB4507453. It was published as part of the Patch Day of July 2019.

The problem affects only some devices. The notification to restart the device after the installation of the update does not disappear after the restart on the affected devices. Windows notifies the user that a restart is necessary. But regardless of the time the system is restarted, it still shows the notification.

Microsoft has not yet recognized the problem. A possible solution is to use the reset option shown in the restart warning to resolve it (through Günter Born).

Some Windows 10 users reported that the SFC / Scannow option did not work properly after installing the latest updates for the operating system. The problem goes back to the more recent definitions of Windows Defender that interfered with the execution of the program.

Last, but not least, a new black screen problem affects the Windows Remote Desktop Protocol windows in version 1903.
