Windows 10 V1903: Update KB4496796 for Slow Ring

[German]Microsoft’s developers continue to fix bugs within the Windows 10 19H1 development branch, which (hopefully) will soon be released as Windows 10 Version 1903. Now an update has been released that fixes the upgrade bug in build 18356.16. 


At the end of March 2019 Microsoft had to stop the distribution of the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18362 in the Slow Ring. The reason was installation problems with users who were using build 18356.21 on the road. I had discussed details within my blog post Windows 10 Insider Build 18362 stopped in Slow Ring – Workaround. They also suggested a workaround to perform the upgrade.

Microsoft fixes the upgrade bug

In an addendum from April 2, 2019, Microsoft has announced the following in the Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18362:

UPDATE 4/2: We have released Build 18356.21 (KB4496796) to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring who are currently on Build 18356.16. This update will get Insiders who are on Build 18356.16 back into a good state so they can update to Build 18362. We are allowing a few days for this update to roll out before offering Build 18362 – so that means Insiders will still not see Build 18362 offered after updating to Build 18356.21. But stay tuned!

So the upgrade blocking bug in Insider Preview build 18356.16 seems to be fixed. (Thanks to EP for the comment).
