We recently reported that some Windows 10 systems experienced issues with the Windows Update service which prevented the correct completion of the upgrade. It seems that Microsoft acknowledged the problem and eventually released an update aimed at these computers to fix the problem. The update is called Windows 10 Update facilitation service and it’s listed as KB4056254.

The update targets all version of Windows 10 up to Creators Update

The patch should fix Windows Update issues on computers running Windows 10 Home or Pro version 1507 (original Windows release), 1511 (November Update), 1607 (Anniversary Update), and 1703 (Creators Update).

Only specific builds need the update, and these include systems running Windows 10 versions, 1507, 1511, 1607 and 1703.

After you download the update, it will open a dialog box called Important fix for Windows Update, and this is based on a new design that is similar to a malware infection. A UAC prompt will be listed before the installation starts.

The update brings files and resources to address update issues

This update includes files and resources to address issues affecting background update processes in the Windows Update servicing stack. Maintaining Window Update service health and performance helps ensure that quality updates are installed seamlessly on your device and help to improve the reliability and security of devices running Windows 10,” says Microsoft in the official notes here.

There are some voices who claim that the tech giant is using this particular patch just to be able to force users to update to newer versions of Windows 10 and this is mainly because the patch makes changes targeting the Windows Update service. On the other hand, there have been no reports and complaints about forced updates that are powered by this patch.
