    Windows 10 KB4579311 fails to install and causes other issues


    After downloading Windows 10 KB4579311 and KB4577671, users have found that it’s causing a wide range of issues, including system crashes and endless installation loop.

    On October 13, fondly referred to as Patch Tuesday, Microsoft rolled out the October Patch Tuesday cumulative updates to Windows 10 version 2004, version 1909, version 1903, and other supported versions.

    Microsoft shipped two Windows 10 updates – KB4579311 for version 2004 and KB4577671 for version 1909/1903. KB4579311 is a crucial update as it fixes vulnerabilities in the operating system and long-standing network connectivity issues, including the infamous no internet bug.

    As has been the case with September patch, it didn’t take long for users to report installation issues, system crashes, and other general bugs.

    Users on Microsoft’s community forum, Reddit, and Feedback Hub are reporting several issues after installing Windows 10 KB4579311 and Windows 10 KB4577671.

    KB4579311 fails to install with 0x8007000d, ox800f0988


    Windows 10 KB4579311 is failing to install for users with the following error messages:

    • 0x8007000d
    • ox800f0988
    • 0x800f0831
    • 0x80073701
    • 0x80070002
    • 0x800f081f

    Note that KB4577671 for version 1909 and version 1903 is also failing for users with the aforementioned errors.

    Windows 10 KB4579311 fails to install and causes other issues KB4579311-installation-issue.jpg

    These are most-common error code reported by users and these usually relate to missing files in the Windows Update, WinSXS, and other components responsible for processing updates on Windows 10.

    Unfortunately, the old trick of downloading the update manually from the Microsoft Update Catalog no longer works. Windows 10 installation issues have become par for the course with Windows Update and users reported the problems last month too.

    It’s possible to fix these issues with an in-place upgrade via Microsoft’s Media Creation Tool, but this option is not available at the moment.

    The major advantage of doing an in-place upgrade is that you can fix all underlying issues with Windows Update and you don’t have to delete your files or apps. This process takes the least amount of time and it’s the safest way to install updates that are failing.

    Unfortunately, you will have to wait until the third or fourth week of October to install October patches using Media Creation Tool. We’ve observed that the Media Creation Tool is updated every third and fourth week of the month with fresh cumulative updates.

    For now, you can pause updates for a while until Microsoft publishes the update in the Media Creation Tool or irons out the bugs. You can pause updates from Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update.

    Blue Screen of Death and other bugs


    Unfortunately, Windows 10 KB4579311 is also trashing display monitor for some users, while others have again reported blue or black screen problem.

    System crashes, Blue Screen of Death, and audio issues are common for some users after Patch Tuesday update. Also, it’s important to understand that only some users are seeing these issues and it’s unlikely to be widespread, at least for now.

    Here’s a list of issues reported by users:

    • Long download and installation time.
    • Update fails to install.
    • System crashes.
    • File Explorer, printing, audio issues.

    If you do come across these issues, there’s one simple solution: uninstall the patch and pause update, and wait until Microsoft (hopefully) fixes the bugs.

  2. Password not accepted after KB4579311 update installed

    Hi

    RE: Password not accepted after KB4579311 update

    Computer HP

    ED: Win 10 Home

    Ver: 2004 x64

    Installed: 19.06.20.

    OS Build: 19041.450

    Password not accepted after KB4579311 update, having tried the following basics six times:-

    Double checked correct PW

    Entered PW with Virtual screen keyboard

    Check Virtual keyboard was UK setting

    Changing PW in safe internet mode

    PW reset using USB

    All my above attempts failed while using KB4579311 update.

    Returned system to previous operating system prior to KB4579311 update computer accepts my PW and works all OK. Have paused win 10 updates for one month as it appears KB4579311 update is causing the issue.

    Having read previous MRDBeta work around reply post.

    KB4579311 is sitting in my Local Disk, Windows, SoftwareDistribution, Download folder. Is it worth me deleting KB4579311 and try to install the patches or through Windows 10
    updates again?

    OR

    Wait for a confirmed work around or update from MS as I need my computer for work and I'm not a computer expert?

    Regards

    Sam

    It's good that you're not experiencing any issues. Unfortunately many folks are, a quick Google search will show the same info im offering the OP.

    Heres a couple examples:

    Here

    Here

    It's basically what I mentioned above, small issues here and there ,but nothing to end your day.. for the most part.

    I know it's anecdotal, but for my experience 95% of the time it's perfectly fine. The issues I've run into wouldn't be enough for me to roll back , but they would be enough (had I not installed it yet) ,to avoid it for another couple weeks which is why I'm suggesting it to the OP
