Warning about Microsoft security updates May 2024

May 17, 2024

On May 14, 2024, Microsoft rolled out the security update KB5037765 for Windows Server 2019 and Windows 10 as part of the monthly patchday.

The security updates from the May Patchday fail on many “Windows Server 2019” systems with error number “0x800f0982”. There are also reports of installation errors for the KB5037765 update under Windows 10 build 1809. Home and Pro versions of this Windows build are not affected, as they have already reached the end of support in 2020. However, there are still supported Enterprise and LTSC versions that enjoy extended support.

Further information: Microsoft Information

We therefore recommend that systems not maintained by VIVAVIS AG do not roll out the KB5037765 update on these systems. Please wait until Microsoft publishes further information in this regard and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

For all systems that are actively maintained by VIVAVIS AG as part of service contracts, we have already taken appropriate measures and blacklisted the problematic updates.

If you have any further questions or require technical support, please contact our costumer center.
