Anyone on here having issues with this update.
One of the systems here doesn't seem to want it.
Its showing as installed & requiring restart.
It's getting a few mentions on google.
I've tried most of the suggestions but still no joy.

The first line in smaller print says it all in that article.

BUT remember no ones a mind reader. The correct version should be 16299.248 If its that number then it has actually installed. There's a minor bug that's been there for several months that says it hasn't when in fact it has installed.

As its OFTEN asked on the insider program.

1. What is the exact build of Windows 10 you have ?
2. What is the actual complete error message ?
3. What Antivirus or other types of security do you have installed, what version number is it ?
4. Again not mind readers "I've tried most of the suggestions but still no joy. " WHAT suggestions have been tried. ?

(I can name 3 I'd do right away, but whose to say if they have already been tried or not ;))

BTW-- To actually answer the first part of the original question -- no problems at all.

"One of the known issues in this build is with Windows Update where the system will incorrectly report that the update has failed to install."
:)

You may need to wait for the March update for MS to fix the bugs with this update

Yeah, they usually work ok for me too.
Could be because its a fresh install this week.
I'll leave it till next month and see what happens.

This system seems to have sorted itself out now.
It did a massive update on Monday & has been good since.
