Windows 10 1903 changes the way software updates are deployed. Microsoft now pushes the updates through what is known as the Unified Update Platform. For system administrators, this means you will need to configure a new product category for WSUS and Config Manager.

Since October of 2018, Microsoft had said they were going to release a Unified Update Platform preview, with the idea being to simplify services for IT professionals.

All administrators should make sure the Windows 10 version 1903 or later and Windows 10 checkboxes are checked from the Update Management Tool so the updates can be synchronized. You can do that by heading to the Administration > Site Configuration > Sites from within the Configuration Manager console.

The software updates’ metadata is retrieved during syncing in the Configuration Manager. Once you have synchronized software updates for the first time, you need to go to the properties to select the new items.

System Center Configuration Manager must be running at least version 1902 before you can deploy feature and quality updates to computers that are running on Windows 10 1903 version 1903 or Windows Server version 1903.

As usual, you can navigate to Start > Settings > Update and Security > Windows Update to check what version of Windows 10 you are currently running. You may also want to click on the Check for Updates button to check if any new releases are available to install to keep your computer as up to date as possible to help keep your software running smoothly.

You can read more about the changes coming for WSUS and Config Manager from the Microsoft Tech Community official blog below.
