Starting today, Microsoft is making its Windows 10 October 2018 Update available again to users who wish to download the update as soon as possible. This comes after Microsoft originally pulled the update due to a serious file deletion bug back in early October, which has now been fixed.
Just like last time, the update is only available for "seekers," or people who actively download it themselves, at this time. This means that only those who manually go into Windows Update and press on the "check for updates" button will receive the October 2018 Update, assuming their PC is compatible. Microsoft is doing checks on every PC that requests the update to ensure there are no compatibility issues. If there are, the update will not be offered to you just yet.
John Cable, Microsoft's Director of Program Management, Windows Servicing and Delivery said the following:
Microsoft is taking this rollout very seriously, meaning it will slowly roll out to a wider audience over time. Today, seekers can grab it, and over the next few weeks and month, Microsoft will start automatically informing users that there is a new feature update that is ready to download and install.
The company is ensuring that there are no longer any file deletion bugs that will affect users' data when upgrading from their current version of Windows 10. While this issue only affected a relatively small number of people, it made mainstream news, which likely worried many more users than might have been affected.
Microsoft is also making available Windows Server 2019 once again, along with all other flavors of Windows 10 including IoT, Enterprise, Home, Pro, and Education.
