KB3102812 and KB3112336 breaks Windows Update user interface on Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • The KB3102812 is now installed as Important update in November 2015 patch tuesday. I noticed that after the KB is installed any manual Windows Update process lacks "Installing updates" stage in user interface. If affects both classic desktop Control Panel - Windows Update user interface and modern PC Settings one.

    Before the KB update manual windows update behaves as expected:

    1. Check for updates ... searching ... if any, you can select stem

    2. Install button

    3. Reports Downloading updates stage

    4. Reports Preparing to install stage

    5. Reports Installing updates stage

    6. Reports Done

    After the KB3102812 is installed the stage 5 no longer exists. It installs updates correctly (typically Windows Defender definitions) but still reports "Preparing to install" stage and after a while "Done" stage. I can reproduce it on two different Windows 8.1 machines. Removing the KB3102812 solves the issue and brings back expected behavior.
