By now, you surely know that Microsoft has released the monthly batch of security updates, also known as Patch Tuesday.

The Redmond-based tech giant has managed to address 69 vulnerabilities (CVE) during this month’s security update release.

However, as always, updates that are meant to fix certain problems sometimes end up breaking more than they actually fix.

It seems that the software launched for Windows 10 users is doing just that, so we’re going to take a closer look at the situation.

Be careful before installing this update to your device

Earlier this week, Microsoft released June 2023 Patch Tuesday update for Windows 10 and 11 users, as well as for obsolete versions of the OS.

Distributed as KB5027215, the update addressed security issues with no specific details about the changes or improvements.

That being said, it seems the update may have brought over a bug causing systems to install the patch slower than usual.

According to user reports on Reddit, KB5027215 is taking more than half an hour to install for some users, with clean-up process post-update taking most of the time.

This same issue has been reported by multiple users and is happening when trying to install the cumulative update along with Microsoft .NET updates.

Users affected by this issue are saying:

Only unusual thing that I noticed which others might have experienced is the long “cleaning up” process post-update/pre-login on the reboot. That happens if you reboot for the cumulative update and the NET update at the same time.

Know that the tech giant is yet to acknowledge the issue or share any information about the existence of this bug or any solutions.

For the time being, there is no workaround to fix the problem and you should be prepared for a long wait time if you plan to go ahead and install the update.

Keep in mind that turning off your system during the update is not a wise option and can harm your device. You should let the update install completely, even if it takes much longer than usual.

Besides longer installation times, users have also reported issues installing the update, with some saying that the update did not install after the PC rebooted.

Furthermore, on Feedback Hub, users have reported getting 0x80073701 error when trying to install the latest cumulative update.

If you haven’t upgraded and are still using Windows 10, but don’t want to install the new update then it might be a good idea to pause updates on the system.
