Some Windows 10 users receive endless update message


After the KB50753 update for Windows 10 1903, some users are affected by an endless hint loop. This indicates that the system must be rebooted to fully install the update. However, the message does not disappear after a reboot.

According to the IT magazine, this is a bug in the user interface. For a previously unknown reason, the operating system does not recognize that the update has already been installed. In addition, the error only occurs with some users and is not a general problem.

Some simple workarounds known

However, there are some methods to bypass the loop. If users click on the displayed button and there click on the embedded restart function, the problem should stop. A user of the online community Deskmodder reports this after rebooting the system several times in the conventional way – via the start menu.

The Heise editorial team also discovered a workaround on a test device: the editors manually searched for new updates using the Windows Update function. The message was probably no longer displayed after this process.

Microsoft introduced a slightly changed update behavior in 1903: Users who manually check for updates receive this earlier and directly. On the other hand, Microsoft is gradually rolling out the automatic update for Windows 10 in smaller waves instead of supplying all users at the same time. It checks whether a client is suitable for the update. Microsoft wants to continue this procedure with the upcoming content patch.
