Microsoft released quality improvements to the Windows 10 version 1903 servicing stack, the component designed to allow users to receive and install Windows updates. Microsoft says that this critical servicing stack update "addresses an issue with a Secure Boot feature update that may cause BitLocker to go into recovery mode because of a race condition." All Windows 10 users are advised to first update the servicing stack to the latest version before attempting to install the latest cumulative updates. Installing the servicing stack updates (SSU) issued by Redmond ensure that users' devices can receive and install Microsoft security fixes with the help of a reliable and robust servicing stack. In addition, customers are recommended to update the servicing stack to the latest version as soon as possible to avoid potential issues which could appear during the installation process of both feature and quality updates. As explained by Microsoft in the Windows IT Pro Center, the servicing stack update also "contains the 'component-based servicing stack' (CBS), which is a key underlying component for several elements of Windows deployment, such as DISM, SFC, changing Windows features or roles, and repairing components." The servicing stack update can be installed automatically via Windows Update or with the help of standalone update packages available for download from the Microsoft Update Catalog website. Windows Server users can use the Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) to mass deploy the update to all computers on a network. Microsoft still blocks some devices with compatibility issues from receiving and installing the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, to prevent incompatible machines from installing the update.
