   Microsoft says the update was removed from WSUS

Update KB5017383, also known as the Windows September 2022 preview update or the C release of the month, has made its way to WSUS for Windows Server users as well

However, the Redmond-based software giant explains in a tech article that the listing is just an error, eventually causing other problems for customers.

“IT administrators who utilize Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) might notice that the Windows September 2022 preview update, known as the 'C' release, is listed among the updates available from WSUS. This listing is an error. Preview updates are generally available for manual importing via the Microsoft Update Catalog and Windows Updates,” the software giant explains.

Needless to say, home users aren’t affected in any way given the issue only impacts WSUS.

Microsoft, however, says the listing could lead to other problems, including the installation of the September 2022 Cumulative Update Preview for .NET Framework.

A workaround is already available

The company says the error has been corrected already, and the Windows September 2022 preview release can now be found in the Microsoft Update Catalog.

“In environments where WSUS is configured to auto-approve updates and also auto-decline superseded content, the Windows September 2022 Security update may subsequently be auto-declined and auto-expired from the client view. If this occurs, see the guidance for reinstating declined updates. Then run an update synchronization within Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager, or update management environments. Environments configured to only take security updates should not reflect these symptoms,” the software giant explains.

In the meantime, the company is also working on a full solution for customers where the update has already been imported via WSUS. At the time of writing, however, the update has already been removed from WSUS, so no further devices should be impacted.
