Microsoft rolled out a series of cumulative updates for Windows 10 last Tuesday, but many users couldn’t automatically install them via Windows Update. The tech giant managed to fix the network transmission issue that caused the install problems on Patch Tuesday, and recently re-released the updates.

Update KB3193494 now replaces cumulative update KB3189866, bringing the same content in terms of fixes and improvements. Microsoft explained that the install issues users had encountered last week were due to a network transmission bug and added that the best way to solve this problem was to reissue the update.

We encountered a network transmission issue with update KB3189866 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 KB3193494 has the same set of fixes as KB3189866. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

KB3193494  brings the following quality improvements and security fixes:

  • Improved reliability of Windows Shell, map apps, Internet Explorer 11, and Microsoft Edge.
  • Addressed issue causing push-button reset to not work correctly and roll back on devices with language set to any of the Unicode languages.
  • Addressed issue causing devices to crash after disconnecting an e-reader that was attached to the device.
  • Addressed issue causing devices to not recognize a Secure Digital (SD) card if it is inserted and removed multiple times.
  • Addressed issue causing some apps to not respond to the commands in the app bar in Windows 10 Mobile.
  • Addressed issue that sometimes blocks alarm notifications in Windows 10 Mobile.
  • Improved support for using the camera app in Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise.
  • Addressed additional issues with rendering 4K resolution, missing Start menu tiles when running on battery, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft
  • Edge, Bluetooth compatibility, graphics, display rotation, app compatibility, Wi-Fi, Feedback Hub, Miracast, Windows Shell, revised daylight saving time, and USB.
  • Security updates to Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Graphics Component, Windows kernel, and Adobe Flash Player.

You should have already received the update by now, so just head to the Settings app > Updates & security, and install it.
