Microsoft has announced that the Windows 10 October 2018 Update is now available for all ‘advanced users’ who manually select “Check for updates” via Windows Update and who don’t have any known compatibility issues.
On the update history page of the October 2018 Update, Microsoft writes, “Rollout Status as of December 17, 2018: Windows 10, version 1809, is now fully available for advanced users who manually select “Check for updates” via Windows Update.”
Nevertheless, some systems are still blocked from the update because they suffer from compatibility issues. Amongst those issues are a problem with certain Intel Display Drivers and F5 VPN clients. The update is also blocked on systems running Trend Micro’s OfficeScan and Worry-Free Business Security software, and on systems with an AMD Radeon HD2000 or HD40000 GPU.
Users with these compatibility issues also won’t receive the Windows 10 October 2018 Update if they manually check for updates.
