Woke up this morning to see this had been installed during the night, I do not know how many of my tweaks are disappeared by the upgrade though.

It has fixed a problem I have had with a update that would not install, either by Windows update or manually downloading it and running it.

I don't know what is new. :meh:

In other news I have got Oreo update in a week or so on my mobile phone...

By the way, this is from the SOPHOS Naked Security website explaining things a bit.

On 12 November 2019, users running Windows 10 version 1803 (the October 2018 update) or earlier on non-enterprise licenses will be required to upgrade to version 1903 (May 2019 update) or find themselves no longer able to receive monthly security updates.

According to Microsoft, from that date, Windows 10 version 1803 Home, Windows 10 version 1803 Pro, Windows 10 version 1803 Pro for Workstations, and Windows 10 version 1803 IoT Core will reach end of servicing, which means:

Windows Update will automatically initiate a feature update to ensure device security and ecosystem health.​
Support for Windows 10 Enterprise users still on 1803 will end in November 2020.

Needless to say, despite recent warnings this was coming, the update demand is likely to come as a shock to many 1803 users who only received what is still the most widely used version of Windows 10 as recently as May 2018.
