Microsoft’s Update Stack Package feature has an installation error
Earlier, we mentioned that Microsoft introduced a new update type to users of the Windows 11 development version. This update type is called an update stack package to optimize the system.
The update stack package may be somewhat similar to the previous service stack package. According to Microsoft’s instructions, the update is designed to reduce various errors that occur when the system installs cumulative updates.
The update stack package can automatically retrieve and clean up redundant files to ensure the normal installation of other cumulative updates of the system and provide the best and least disruptive experience.
But now there is a slightly embarrassing situation: Many users of the development version report that the update stack package cannot be installed normally and the system keeps trying to automatically install it in a loop.
According to the situation described by netizens, the installation of the update stack package is similar to other cumulative updates, all of which report an error during the download process or an error code appears during the installation.
However, the update stack package is currently in the testing phase and is only available to some development version users, so it is not clear how many users this issue affects.
This update is also a critical system update, so it is set to be automatically installed. When the system fails to install, it will automatically check for updates and install it again after restarting.
In response to the error, Jason Howard, the project manager of the Windows 11 internal preview program, said that they have received feedback on the issue and are investigating.
