On September 7, Microsoft started rolling out a new update to select Windows 10 devices with improvements for the update mechanism. The new development comes days after company Redmond-based Microsoft announced Windows 10 October 2018 Update at IFA 2018 event in Berlin.

An updated version of KB4023057 for Windows 10 version has been released for Windows 10 version 1507, 1511, 1607, 1703, and 1709 (Fall Creators Update).

This update is rolling to select devices only and you cannot force it on your PC. It includes reliability improvements to Windows Update Service components in Windows 10.

“This update includes files and resources that address issues that affect the update processes in Windows 10 that may prevent important Windows updates from being installed. These improvements help make sure that updates are installed seamlessly on your device, and they help improve the reliability and security of devices that are running Windows 10,” Microsoft explains.

It’s worth noting that this update isn’t available in the Microsoft Update Catalog and it’s only offered to select PCs via Windows Update. KB4023057 was originally released earlier this year and the official KB page revealed that it was last updated on September 7 with additional fixes and improvements.
