    Update history has disappeared


    I did a clean legal install of Win10 on Jan 6, 2020. Updates were immediately dowloaded including the features update 1909. Since then updates have been dowloading and installing normally and showing up in "installed updates". Today I looked at "installed updates" and discovered that aside than the four updates installed today Feb 13, now only two updates are shown since the features update on Jan 6. About twenty security and other updates have disappeared from the list. Have these updates been superceded and uninstalled by more recent updates or is there a problem? Thanks for your help.

    :)

    There is a good reason to clear update history when a new Feature update is Installed (via WU).

    This is that any updates that were in place were either included in the new release or were only temporary fixes to since fixed issues.

    However there does appear to be an issue which I think is down to an incomplete change from the old settings via Control Panel to the new settings method, The update list is still visible through the control panel but as noted the links for this in the new system are not yet completed ( enough to make the menus disappear and reset

    Update History Disappeared

    Hi Deb,

    It's really odd for the Windows Update history to disappear if you just install an update. However, we suggest that you run the
    Windows Update troubleshooter and see if it'll resolve your concern.

    Let us know if the article helps.
