I now only install the Security Only Update, normally a month behind, so now Octobers has been released, I will install Septembers. That way, it should contain any new updating that was needed and work without any problems!

I hid the rollup yesterday and I just ran the check again. Still no servicing stack. Maybe I don't need it? I'm staying away from the rollups because of all the issues. I don't want to mess up my system.

I think that issue only affected the new nothing-ever-goes-wrong W10 (1809 "upgrade").

Allegedly MS has fixed it.
Microsoft fixed the data loss issue in Windows 10 version 1809 - gHacks Tech News

That said, it seems reasonable to avoid installing anything that MS releases.
I haven't installed any updates since the December 2017 Security-Only update.

However I notice that something installed KB2999226 at the end of August.
It's somehow related to Visual Studio, which isn't installed on this machine.

I haven't installed a single rollup on either Windows 7 or 8.1 since they changed the Servicing model. Complete waste of time for Windows 7 anyway, as it's not even getting mainstream support anymore, so won't get any new features. I haven't noticed any new features being added to 8.1 for a while either.

I've just stuck with the Security-only updates for both, as those are the only aspects of Windows updates that I want to install these days.

The only time I've ever installed rollups is in VMs, and a lot of the time it hasn't gone that smoothly. At least with a VM you can instantly restore the snapshot.

I know they're supposed to make clean installs easier (when they actually install correctly), but I just use WSUSOffline for that. I prefer to stick to how things were pre-servicing model change. I rarely had any issues with Windows updates before that. Not counting the annoying Windows 10 upgrade fiasco of course!

It didn't show up for me until I hid the monthly rollup (which I never install), so maybe the updated files are already included in the latest rollup.

Greetings Brds7t7 and townsbg.
Hid the rollup, but Stack Update did not show up when running WU. Was instead offered preview of previous month rollup. The system has v1 installed.

Any idea?

Have you installed any previous months rollups? It's possible the relevant files have already been included.

I don't install any rollups on any systems and the Servicing Stack appeared on all mine. I did already have v1 installed on all of them.

I wouldn't worry about it, if it hasn't appeared, it probably means you're good to go.

There's only a couple of KB difference in size, so I'm pretty sure v2 is the same as v1 except for maybe an entry that somehow tells WU that it's needed for future updates. When it does appear in WU, my Optional list disappeared and that was the only update that could be installed. So MS must have made it a mandatory install before any other updates can be installed.

A wise decision from MS, as using an older SS is apparently the cause of a lot of rollup failures.

I had that happen last week. I got a notification that I needed to restart my machine(?) Checked Update History and found KB2999226 had just been installed! Realized that Adobe Reader installed it for *its* update. Promptly uninstalled both KB2999226 and Adobe Reader. Am now using Chrome for .PDF files since there's no way to install an older version of AR without automatic updates

One automatic updates in adobe reader can be disabled. Two there is an alternative to Adobe reader. Free PDF Reader & PDF Viewer Download | Foxit Software

I had a look at my Downloads partition and I didn't download anything on that date.

I use Foxit and I don't have Adobe Reader.
Maybe Flash Player did it.

Avast AV (Free) is another suspect as it's always updating.
