windows 10 update

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 version 1909 in November 2019. The big M already started to work on the next big feature update expected to land in the first half of 2020. The company recently pushed cumulative update KB4531955, which is the latest preview for Windows 10’s 20H1 Update.

As far as the changelog is concerned, KB4531955 does not bring any notable changes. Microsoft released the update primarily to test servicing for 20H1 builds. This is a very lightweight update that helps Microsoft check the reliability of its update servicing system. That update changed the OS build number to version 19025.1052.

However, many Slow Ring Insiders reported they can’t install KB4531955.
