Microsoft has finally fixed the update transmission issues that prevented users from installing the latest Patch Tuesday package on their computers. The company pushed KB3193494 to replace the cumulative KB3189866 plagued by install bugs. A second update, KB3193821, has also been rolled out, this time replacing Windows 10 KB3185611.
Microsoft apologized for the inconvenience caused by the install problems, and explained that the culprit was a network transmission issue.
We encountered a network transmission issue with update KB3185611 published on September 13, 2016, and the quickest way to address this issue was to reissue the update to all Content Delivery Networks. This new update KB3193821 has the same set of fixes as KB3185611. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
You can now install update KB3193821 for Windows 10 1507 (July 2015 release) and finally get the content of the initial KB3185611 update on your computer. There is no difference between the two updates in terms of the fixes and improvements they bring. To install the KB3193821 update, go to the Settings app > Updates & security, and check for updates.
