    A Second update: (KB2919355)


    This morning I saw a blue screen telling me there were updates to install.

    I OK'ed it and it was KB2919355 - the so-called 8.1.1 update.

    Weird, a second one?

    It was a very quick install and restart.

    I got it too except that the install was unsuccessful.

    I had update since it leaked first time and it was just fine until yesterday when computer restarted because of some glitch in HW.
    Then in red letters on the sign in page, it said that this update is ready to be downloaded and installed. At first I declined because I can clearly see that it's installed and functioning. Now when I read this post I checked again with Win Update and it showed up on the list, I let it update, finished in few seconds, restarted computer and now it does not show as available any more and that is installed.

    When the update is installed, I think, like any MS updates, a cookie is also stored and the log is updated.
    If a cleaner is subsequently used, it will remove the log, and the update service sees it as no longer installed. It is happening, as this is an "update of updates". Definitely a serious bug which should not be happening.
    However, to the point and for info, have you since, cleaned up in any way?

    No, I didn't, it's all the same since last update.

    I just did a clean install and got:
    KB2939087 - apparently a hotfix for "Error 0x800771a91 when installing update 2919355 in Windows", then
    got the KB2919355 again.

    OK. I have made a fresh install from the full MSDN ISO. I am going to put noting on it except the updates, and wait to see what happens.

    I think its a re-release of the same update to fix Windows Update itself. Think I read on here, try a search.

    I reckon you'll have another update of KB2919355 offered to you next time you run Windows Update, as per this thread
    If you updated early with the MSDN update

    (And also because I tried something similar with a clean install from the MSDN ISO and it was offered to me.)

    So far, only 3 hours later, no further update.
    P.S. No, it was not the leaked update, it was the full ISO download from MSDN on the 2nd April.
