Known issues updating to Windows 10, version 1809
Symptom Workaround

We have paused the rollout of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809)* for all users as we investigate isolated reports of users missing some files after updating.
If you have manually checked for updates and believe you have an issue with missing files after an update, please minimize your use of the affected device and contact us directly at +1-800-MICROSOFT, or find a local number in your area https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/hel ... ne-numbers. Alternatively use a different device to contact us at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/contactus/ (link will vary according to country of origin).

If you have manually downloaded the Windows 10 October 2018 Update installation media, please don’t install it and wait until new media is available.

We will provide an update when we resume rolling out the Windows 10 October 2018 Update to customers.


Ouch!

That's what happens when a company that sells commercial software uses its users as beta-testers.
Meanwhile, a completely free and open source operating system provides thoroughly tested updates and upgrades that very seldom or not at all go wrong.

ouch indeed.
please minimize your use of the affected device and contact us directly at +1-800-MICROSOFT

i bet that number is very busy right now.
how nonchalantly they are telling their users to just stop using their computers until they fixed everything.
of course, if full backups are activated it shouldn't be a biggie, but still... i'd demand a refund!

some more gory details.
