In the recently released Windows 10 version 1809 latest cumulative update KB4495667, Microsoft confirmed the language pack issue in the previous version, and it seems that only Asian language packs are affected.
“After installing KB4493509, devices with some Asian language packs installed may receive the error, “0x800f0982 – PSFX_E_MATCHING_COMPONENT_NOT_FOUND.””
Although Microsoft said the problem existed in the Windows 10 cumulative update KB4493509 released on April 9, the same error has also occurred in two other cumulative updates released in early May.
Therefore, the full list of cumulative updates with language pack errors is as follows:
- April 9, 2019 – KB4493509 (OS Build 17763.437)
- May 1, 2019 – KB4501835 (OS Build 17763.439)
- May 3, 2019 – KB4495667 (OS Build 17763.475)
According to the official Microsoft solution, affected users should uninstall and reinstall any recently added language packs.
If reinstalling the language pack does not solve the problem, Microsoft said that it has to reset the PC. The reset method is as follows:
- Go to the Settings app > Recovery.
- Select Get Started under the Reset this PC recovery option.
- Select Keep my Files.
At the same time, Microsoft claims that it is undergoing a full fix and is committed to addressing this issue in an upcoming release. The next cumulative update for Windows 10 is expected to be available on May 14, Microsoft Patch Tuesday.
