Microsoft is close to releasing a fix for the Windows 10 PC 14393.222 install issues

Microsoft says it is now "finalizing" a fix for the Windows 10 PC owners who have been unable to install the latest 14393.222 cumulative update.

The company rolled out the update last week, first to Release Preview Insiders and then later to all Windows 10 PC users. However, many of them have been unable to install the update. Now, in a post on Microsoft's support forums (via Neowin), a company rep provided this update:

Hello Insiders!We've been working diligently on this issue and are finalizing a clean-up script that will fix the underlying issue preventing the install of KB3194496 (Cumulative Update 14393.222) for affected users. Your patience during our research and subsequent work is greatly appreciated.Thank you as always and stay tuned!

If you can't wait for this clean-up script to be released, there is at least one third-party workaround that seems to do the trick, although it does require some registry editing which can be tricky.
