A list of the updates can be found on this Microsoft website. I have pulled out the details below. Since March 2021, Microsoft has been integrating Servicing Stack Updates (SSUs) for newer Windows 10 builds into the cumulative update. The description of the fixes in the security updates is extremely brief. If you're looking for details on the fixes, you'll have to check the descriptions of the preview updates from previous weeks.

Updates for Windows 10 Version 20H2-22H2

For the Windows 10 versions mentioned above, Microsoft provides only one update package, which is mentioned below.

Update KB5019959 for Windows 10 Version 20H2 – 22H2

Cumulative Update KB5019959 raises the OS build on Windows 10 Enterprise/Education 20H2 -22H2 to 1904x.2251 The update only includes security fixes, but no new OS features – with Microsoft not providing details. The list of improvements can be read in the blog post Windows 10 20H2-22H2 Preview Update KB5018482 (Oct. 25, 2022), as the preview update will, after all, be included in the regular security update on the following month's patchday.

Microsoft points out that this update makes quality improvements to the servicing stack (is responsible for Microsoft updates). This update is automatically downloaded and installed by Windows Update, but is also available from the Microsoft Update Catalog and via WSUS and WUfB.

Note the installation sequence described in the support article and also the notes on further requirements. Microsoft states known issues for the update in the support article.
