KB4579311 installation issue

These are most-common error code reported by users and these
usually relate to missing files in the Windows Update, WinSXS,
and other components responsible for processing updates on
Windows 10.

Unfortunately, the old trick of downloading the update manually
from the Microsoft Update Catalog no longer works. Windows 10
installation issues have become par for the course with Windows
Update and users reported the problems last month too.

It’s possible to fix these issues with an in-place upgrade via
Microsoft’s Media Creation Tool, but this option is not
available at the moment.

The major advantage of doing an in-place upgrade is that you
can fix all underlying issues with Windows Update and you don’t
have to delete your files or apps. This process takes the least
amount of time and it’s the safest way to install updates that
are failing.

Unfortunately, you will have to wait until the third or fourth
week of October to install October patches using Media Creation
Tool. We’ve observed that the Media Creation Tool is updated
every third and fourth week of the month with fresh cumulative

For now, you can pause updates for a while until Microsoft
publishes the update in the Media Creation Tool or irons out
the bugs. You can pause updates from Settings > Update and
Security > Windows Update.

Unfortunately, Windows 10 KB4579311 is also trashing display
monitor for some users, while others have again reported blue
or black screen problem.

common for some users after Patch Tuesday update. Also, it’s
important to understand that only some users are seeing these
issues and it’s unlikely to be widespread, at least for now.

Here’s a list of issues reported by users:

  • Long download and installation time.
  • Update fails to install.
  • System crashes.
  • File Explorer, printing, audio issues.

Uninstall update

If you do come across these issues, there’s one simple
solution: uninstall the patch and pause update, and wait until
Microsoft (hopefully) fixes the bugs.
