Browsing the list of fixes I’m asking me: What’s still not broken in Windows 10 V190x. It’s unbelievable, how many bugs they need to be fixed. By the way, some fixes already appear in earlier updates for older Windows 10 versions (see Windows 10 Updates (10/15/2019)).

In addition, Microsoft has released an update directly for the Windows Update Client to improve its reliability. This will be rolled out outside Windows Update if the machine is compatible and not a LTSC variant and updates have not been blocked by GPO.

This update is automatically downloaded and installed by Windows Update. This update is also available in the Microsoft Update Catalog and via WSUS. Microsoft strongly recommends that you install the latest Service Stack Update (SSU) for your operating system before installing the latest Cumulative Update (LCU). Microsoft is not aware of any problems with the update. (Thanks to EP for the hint).

Addendum: One German user mentioned that it breaks his desktop search again.

    even though MS did not mention the fix for 18363 “in-place upgrade” problem of not retaining user files and programs in their support article, KB4522355 build .449 allows 18363 in-place upgrades again while keeping files & apps as I have confirmed this myself
