I haven't seen any mention of either being reissued yet. I just had a look on the Update Catalog and it's still listed as 4th January release date.

The monthly rollup did show up on all my systems yesterday, mine are all Intel CPUs though. Not sure if it's been pulled since then as I haven't been home to check. Are you using an AMD processor?
