Not so fast! Microsoft pulls Windows 10 19H1 Insider Preview Build 18362 from the Slow Ring

A week ago, two days after coming to the Fast Ring,  Microsoft is releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 18362 (19H1) to Windows Insiders in the Slow ring.

The build was speculated by some to be an RTM build and brought the following general changes, improvements, and fixes for PC:

  • Microsoft fixed an issue resulting in the Connect app crashing on launch for some Insiders.
  • Microsoft fixed the issue with Microsoft Store app upates not automatically installing.

Now Microsoft has posted an update noting that installation issues have caused Microsoft to pull the build.

They write:

Over the last couple of weeks, Insiders in the Slow ring have been receiving new 19H1 builds in addition to also receiving Cumulative Updates. After flighting Build 18362 to the Slow ring on Friday, Insiders began reporting they were unable to complete the update. We have discovered an issue with the Build 18356.16 (KB4494123) Cumulative Update that was preventing the update to Build 18362 from completing successfully. This issue only impacts Insiders who are on Build 18356.16 who try to update to Build 18362. THANK YOU to Insiders who reported feedback on this in Feedback Hub and upvoted – your feedback was immensely valuable in helping investigate this issue over the weekend! The team is currently working on a fix now. In the meantime, Build 18362 will no longer be offered to Insiders who are on Build 18356.16, so Insider PCs don’t continue to try and take Build 18362 and fail.

Microsoft says they will post another update once they release the fix and resume the Build 18362 flight.
