Microsoft says that these critical servicing stack updates (SSUs) address "an issue in which the Secure Boot revocation list (DBX) is not applied when the Secure Boot allow list (DB) update is empty."

Servicing stack updates contain "the 'component-based servicing stack' (CBS), which is a key underlying component for several elements of Windows deployment, such as DISM, SFC, changing Windows features or roles, and repairing components," as stated by Microsoft in the Windows IT Pro Center.


We strongly recommend you install the latest servicing stack update (SSU) for your operating system before installing the latest cumulative update (LCU). Installing servicing stack updates (SSU) makes sure that you have a robust and reliable servicing stack so that your devices can receive and install Microsoft security fixes.


This update makes quality improvements to the servicing stack, which is the component that installs Windows updates. Servicing stack updates (SSU) makes sure that you have a robust and reliable servicing stack so that your devices can receive and install Microsoft updates.


I have recently setup two new VMs running on Windows 2016 Datacenter Version 1607. I am able to grab patches successfully from my WSUS server, however, the installation for CU KB4519998 showed as 'Failed to install on 10/16/2019' under Windows Update -> Update history. When I tried to manually install the KB4519998, it said this patch has already been installed. True enough, the KB showed up under Programs and Features > View Installed Updates. So can I safety assumed that installation is successful? I have read up on the KB and I only found the below requirement. "Microsoft strongly recommends you install the latest servicing stack update (SSU) for your operating system before installing the latest cumulative update (LCU). SSUs improve the reliability of the update process to mitigate potential issues while installing the LCU and applying Microsoft security fixes. "


What's a servicing stack update, do I hear you ask? Thought so, as it's not exactly a high profile Windows 10 component and rarely gets a mention even on tech sites. Microsoft describes an SSU as being an update that fixes problems with the component that installs Windows updates.


The SSU needs to be kept up to date as it's integral to improving the reliability of the Windows 10 update process, something we all want to see. Microsoft says that it helps "mitigate potential issues while installing the latest quality updates and feature updates." Perhaps even more importantly, if you don't keep up to date with the SSU releases, then there's a chance that your device won't be able to properly install the latest security updates. The servicing stack updates don't appear every month; rather, they are issued as and when circumstances demand it. One thing remains constant though: SSU's are classified as critical security updates.
