- Other users report their PCs randomly restarting following the update.
- The issues seem to only affect a small subset of users.
Several users have run into issues involving the August 2019 cumulative updates for Windows 10 (via Windows Latest). The update failed to install for some users while others experienced random restarts following the update.
Users on a Reddit thread and on a Microsoft community forum reported that the update failed to install on their PCs. Several error messages appeared during failed installations including 0x800f0982, 0xe0000100, and 0x80073701.
In addition to the update failing to install, some users on Reddit reported that their PCs are randomly restarting. Some Reddit comments state that the issue has been present since Windows 10 version 1903 while others mentioned specifically on a thread for the most recent cumulative update without stating if the error occurred before the update.
These issues seem to affect a small subset of users based on how many people are reporting the issue, but it's unclear how many devices are affected.
