The Windows 10 October 2018 Update hit an important milestone this week, becoming available for anyone to manually download via Windows Update. In an update to its support page, Microsoft says the update is now "fully available for advanced users who manually select "Check for updates" via Windows Update."
That said, there are still some Windows 10 users who will be left out in the cold if they attempt to upgrade.
Though Microsoft has resolved a number of the upgrade blocks for the October 2018 Update, it still has four blocks in place for issues related to AMD HD2000 and HD4000 GPUs, Trend Micro software, F5 VPN clients, and "certain new Intel display drivers."
Full availability comes more than two months after the October 2018 Update initially stumbled out of the gate, with a file deletion bug eventually causing Microsoft to stop the rollout. Microsoft began pushing the update out again in November, taking a more deliberate approach.
