Windows 10 Update issues

At the end of January 2019 some users worldwide had massive problems with Windows Update, Defender and Store Updates. The update service was not available. I had addressed this within my blog post Windows Update Service globally disturbed? (01/31/2019).

This issues disappeared at my test system. In the Windows 10 update history, however, Microsoft reports a malfunction in Windows update as of February 4, 2019.
