Thanks Mike,

I guess it ain’t my turn yet as checking for updates doesn’t give me anything different.

Richard,

 

You're running an older version.  The latest is, 20H2, not 2004, and it's OS version 19042.685.  This newer 20H2 version is using 19042 where the older 2004 versions are at 19041.


Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

I have 2004 OS build 1941.685, it was 1941.630.

Are you sure about the 1942 part of that number?

Brian, Here’s what I found:

December 8, 2020—KB4592438 (OS Builds 19041.685 and 19042.685)

Applies to: Windows 10, version 2004, all editionsWindows Server version 2004Windows 10, version 20H2, all editions More

It didn’t say the update was or was not successful. I assume it was.

Am I the only one who got this one?

And if things don't settle down, it will be important to know what update(s) were applied.  Presuming this is Windows 10, you can determine that in Settings, Update & Security, Windows Update Pane, using the View Update History button.  The most likely pertinent candidates are either under Feature Updates (less likely, but possible) or Quality Updates.  The "Successfully installed on" line will give you the respective dates.
