Microsoft has now updated its Known Issues section for the Cumulative Update for Windows 10 1709 that was released to help solve the Meltdown/Spectre vulnerability.
Some users were delivered the update, it appeared to install, but then was told through Update History that it failed.
Microsoft says that…
Even though the update was successfully installed, Windows Update incorrectly reports that the update failed to install. To verify the installation, select Check for Updates to confirm that there are no additional updates available. You can also type About your PC in the Search box on your taskbar to confirm that your device is using the expected OS build. Microsoft is working on a resolution and will provide an update in an upcoming release.
