Microsoft is always on the move to simplify the updates process and last year in September, they announced that they will bundlee the SSU and CU together in a single package.
How is Microsoft managing the new update package?
Update: Microsoft has finally started to push the first Windows 10 cumulative update combined with a servicing stack update for easy installation.
While in the previous two months, Microsoft tested this LC/SSU update for enterprise and consumers from the Windows Insider program, now it’s the first time that Microsoft released an LC/SSU update via Windows Update.
According to a Tech Community post, you will still need to install the SSU first:
Starting with this release, Microsoft will combine the latest servicing stack update (SSU) for your operating system with the latest cumulative update (LCU). To utilize this improvement, install the most recent standalone SSU (KB4598481) before installing this LCU.
Moreover, Microsoft specified that if you install the LC first, you may encounter the error 0x800f0823 – CBS_E_NEW_SERVICING_STACK_REQUIRED. Fortunately, this error will go away after installing the recommended SSU.
The Cumulative Updates will include the correct Service Stack and will also be available in WSUS and Microsoft Catalog:
Our upcoming changes will ensure that the SSU and LCU are provided together under a single payload to both Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Microsoft Catalog.
The new bundles will be called Servicing Stack so you can look for them easily in the Microsoft Catalog.
Of course, this move will be highly beneficial to administrators since they won’t need to look for CU and SSU compatibility or any other data about them.
