Neowin spotted reports that the latest dose of Patch Tuesday updates from Microsoft is causing issues for some users. A fraction of Windows 10 May 2019 Update users are unable to install the new cumulative patch, while others complain about random reboots.
Those on the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1809) were supposed to receive KB4512508 as part of this month's Patch Tuesday. However, a number of Windows 10 users report seeing errors that are preventing them from installing the update, these being errors 0x800f0982, 0xe0000100, and 0x80073701.

Others are also reporting issues after installing the updates. "Since 1903 my PC keeps randomly restarting. There'll be a small freeze that lasts a couple of seconds, and then it restarts automatically," says one Redditor.
The site suggests running System File Checker, by entering "sfc /scannow" into the command line prompt. However, there's no guarantee that this will fix the issues.
