Microsoft pushes out problematic Windows updates that break Hyper-V and more


problems with updates they are not a new phenomenon for Microsoft, but 2022 is not off to a good start. It wasn’t just KB5009543 and KB5009566 found updates to break VPN connections, another trio of updates have now been removed because they contain critical bugs.

Updates KB5009624, KB5009557, and KB5009555 have been pulled because they cause Hyper-V to stop working. Problematic updates have also been found to cause domain controller reboots and make ReFS volume systems inaccessible.

The three updates relate to different versions of Windows Server; KB5009624 is for Windows Server 2012 R2, KB5009557 is for Windows Server 2019, and KB5009555 is for Windows Server 2022.

The fact that the updates are for Windows Server will be a relief to millions of home users, but more of a headache for system administrators around the world.

For now, Microsoft has not acknowledged that the updates have been pulled, but there are reports from system administrators that the updates are not being offered automatically at this time. Tests performed by bleeding computer show that Windows Server 2019 is no longer being offered update KB5009557.

Updates remain available in the Microsoft Update Catalog, but it’s a good idea to avoid manual installations until Microsoft confirms what’s happening.
