Microsoft blocks yet another upgrade path to windows 10 version-1809

The Windows 10 October 2018 Update has already left every other Windows 10 update far behind in regards to the number of issues discovered with it. But it seems that Microsoft can't call it a day just yet, as yet another blocking issue has been discovered.

 

Over the weekend, the company added yet another issue to the list of known problems with version 1809, this time with anti-malware solution Morphisec.

 

According to the update history page, this includes not only Morphisec itself but also other products built on that SDK:

 

Microsoft and Morphisec have identified an issue on devices that have installed Morphisec Protector or another application that uses the Morphisec Software Development Kit (SDK) including: Cisco AMP for Endpoints. These applications may impact customers’ ability to save Microsoft Office documents.

 

As has been the case with other similar issues, the only known workaround, for now, is uninstalling the affected programs until an updated version is released.

 

Microsoft says it's working with Morphisec and Cisco to get the issue resolved.

This problem is just the latest addition to the list of upgrade blocks put on Windows 10 version 1809, which has had the most troublesome release of any feature update for Microsoft's OS.

 

After an initial release that had to be pulled back just four days later due to major issues, Microsoft ended up re-releasing the update after over a month.

 

But, since then, more and more known issues have been added to the list, and there are a total of five upgrade paths blocked as of the time of writing.

 

Last week, Apple and Microsoft did reach a solution for the issues with iCloud for Windows, lifting one of the upgrade blocks, but the October 2018 Update isn't done causing trouble. Perhaps because of that, the latest release is only on less than 3% of Windows 10 PCs despite being two months old.

Things were going good, though not so great, since the release of windows 10, but perhaps, this version 1809 has created a big mess.......

My landlady had nothing but problems and performance issues with her laptop when she was force fed the Win10 upgrade (downgrade?) Yesterday, she complained how slow it had gotten. And that shouldn't happen since she only uses it for family finances and such. I recommended her to let me reinstall Win7. I'm still living happily with it and without M$ crappy updates I might add.

Windows 10 is a service, which means it gets better through periodic software updates.

 

 

Every version of Windows 10 was plagued with bugs,   most  bugs  never effect everyone , but every bug they had to fix effects some , by the the time a version of Windows  10 gets good they push out the next beta to consumers .

Good as compared to what we are seeing now.

 

Off-course , every machine is unique , so all the bugs , doesn't effect everyone . However , i concur with you, that while fixing some bugs, will inturn effect some other set of users and this vicious cycle continues.

 

Having said that ,I am of the view, that MS should skip two cycles of features upgrades and focus more on the core.

You can look back at all the post at this board  in software news  that were posted around the  time a new version of Windows 10 came out since June 2015 and see they were never good . Back a few years ago my Friend couldn't upgrade to the latest version of Windows 10 because they had drives with games on them they never unplugged   and they had to wait months to upgrade for a fix .    The way Windows  10 is designed they push out updates from checking telemetry  many versions it took many months to get everyone on a new version of Windows 10.  If you don't want bugs you never seek upgrades  you wait on the upgrade to come to you. 

 

Blocking you from upgrading tell  they fix something is a blessing  they have 18 mths  of updates on each version of Windows 10 before it's mandatory for consumers to move to the next version  they could not send you upgrades to 2 versions of Windows 10 and you would be just fine without it.  It was never good it went from bad to worse , the only thing changed is  there actually looking for bugs and blocking you from updating if you have incompatible software they find on your system . The 1st version of Windows 10  many PCs didn't even have compatible Windows 10 drivers and they were letting people upgrade anyway  and you had to figure out how to make it work yourself and if you couldn't you had to roll back to Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 and wait. Before with many bugs in versions windows 10  they didn't block the upgrade and there PCs would BSOD   or they would be stuck in a endless loop of reboots and would have to roll back tell they fixed it in a update.  Updates and Upgrades  every patch Tuesday have been a endless cycle of bugs them fixing bugs  and causing more bugs by fixing bugs and security issues. ,  The 1st versions of Windows 10  you was lucky to get  them to update at all  it was painfully slow at updating sometimes it would take hours to do auto updates  , Because Windows 10 was designed to update and upgrade  itself when it gets good and ready too.

Why do people keep punishing themselves ? I removed Windows 10 from my systems 2 versions ago I rather be using my computer than worrying about   the next update or upgrade   ..Ive never liked Windows 10 since it came out and I gave it the benefit of the doubt by using off and on up tell 2 versions ago  and it just went from bad to worse.

they not care so much nowdays as its for military use nowdays  not  for users

They never cared about people only money only reason they chilled out during the 1st decade of the 21st century was  they got broke up with anti trust lawsuits .  They done the same sort of thing you see in the news today that companies  in China do   Microsoft stole patient protected software  and were sued for it  many times. The only thing different  is if a company  from the USA gets caught stealing they are only punished if they lose in court and  sometimes  they don't lose   .  But Microsoft lost  against Sun   and Apple for stealing.

 

Here are some examples of BIg Tech stealing things and getting away with it.

Apple and Microsoft copied the Xerox GUI, Compaq copied the IBM Bios, Microsoft copied CP/M OS features (via Q-DOS), Google and Samsung copied the iPhone form factor and app store, Facebook copied HarvardConnection, Musk hijacked PayPal and Tesla from the true founders etc.. In all these cases the victims felt they were stolen from but they lost the argument.
