Home » News » Microsoft’s investigating Windows 10 April Update forced install reports

Sadly, the number of bugs that are lurking in Windows 10 April 2018 Update is growing with each passing day. Microsoft has been quite slow in sending patches and fixing these issues that keep popping up. The next Patch Tuesday will take place on June 12, and that’s the date when the  Windows 10 cumulative updates will arrive to users. Everyone is expecting more fixes that will be targeting the Windows 10 April 2018 Update.

Windows 10 2018 Update forced onto PC configured to block it

Various computers running Windows 10 Pro and Enterprise SKUs have been forced to upgrade to April 2018 Update. According to reports, the systems have been forced to update even if they were explicitly configured to get OS features updates when they’re all set for the Semi-Annual Channel.

Microsoft is aware of a potential root-cause

Microsoft discussed the matter with Softpedia and told them that it’s very much aware of an issue that could be triggering these forced updates for incompatible systems which have basically blocked the Windows 10 April 2018 Update.

The rollout of Windows 10 April 2018 Update began in early May, and the whole experience has been unfortunately quite problematic for Windows 10 Home users. The tech giant usually requires a few months to start rolling out new Windows 10 updates to the Semi-Annual Channel. Now, some systems have already received the update this month with a bug on board.

Microsoft’s looking into the matter

Microsoft confirmed for Softpedia that it’s currently looking to find out what caused all this, but no specific details are available on the matter for the moment: “We are aware of these reports and actively investigating this issue.”

It remains to be seen what kind of bug is involved in this forced update process affecting more and more systems.
