Microsoft claimed October 9 it had fixed the issue, but it only re-released the update to beta testers participating in the Windows Insider program. This led to the company pulling the software from its servers and halting the rollout for an undisclosed amount of time. Build 18277 brought in a number of new features, including emoji 12 beta.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update will now reach Windows Update "for a small percentage of users, and people will need to seek it out by checking for updates for it to even be installed", the report added. Microsoft plans to add a Windows update status dashboard next year so users can get timely information on update blocks. You won't get bugged to install it, you won't be able to download it via Windows 10, no, nada. So why is Microsoft releasing the October update now? According to analysis from security vendor Qualys, there is now code publicly available that could force these two products to leak a hash of the user's Windows password (which could then be cracked with open-source tools).

Fans have been asking for a long while to have a say when it comes to installing important updates and it seems that Microsoft has finally made a decision to listen. Well, the Dark Theme is so yesterday's news it seems and naturally users no want a lighter Windows experience.

The only problem with extending support this way is that Windows 10's cadence of releases and matching retirements slips out of sync. It's also important to remember that alongside Windows Insiders, the latest builds are also tested within Redmond itself and by Microsoft's extensive list of OEM partners. But for the 1809 rollout, the update information will be on the Windows 10 update history page. That apart the company also deploys a variety of automated testing processes which help them detect and fix issues quickly.

Last week, Microsoft released a new Windows 10 2019 Preview Build to insiders in the Fast ring. The Windows 10 Enterprise edition does afford a "long-term servicing channel" option that's similar to the old service-pack model, but Microsoft recommends its use only for things like medical devices.
