Windows 10 October 2018 Update was re-released yesterday, which actually makes it a November update. As you may know, Microsoft pulled the update last month after reports about a file deletion bug hit the web. These issues were linked to the use of Known Folder Redirection.

After weeks of testing, the software giant is confident the issue is resolved, but it will distribute the update at a slower pace. The update will be rolled out to fewer users at a time, to more carefully analyze possible issues before they appear on a large scale.
"On November 13, 2018, we will begin the re-release of the Windows 10 October Update (version 1809), Windows Server 2019, and Windows Server, version 1809. We encourage you to wait until the feature update is offered to your device automatically."
On a related note, the re-release of Windows 10 October 2018 Update coincided with Patch Tuesday. This month's dose of security updates included fixes for a total of 64 issues, including 12 critical vulnerabilities.
