Microsoft Releases Servicing Stack Updates for All Windows 10 Versions
Microsoft released quality improvements to the servicing stack for all Windows 10 versions, the component designed to allow users to receive and install Windows updates.
Microsoft states that this critical servicing stack update "addressed an issue in which adding vulnerable boot level components to the Secure Boot disallow list (dbx) may cause the system not to start."
All Windows 10 customers are advised to first update the Windows 10 servicing stack to the latest version before trying to install the KB4515384 and the KB4512578 cumulative updates.
Microsoft states in the servicing stack support document that:
Servicing stack updates improve the reliability of the update process to mitigate potential issues while installing the latest quality updates and feature updates. If you don't install the latest servicing stack update, there's a risk that your device can't be updated with the latest Microsoft security fixes.
