    There is no point to add MRT.

    We have defender definitions a couple times per day, so there is no point to add definitions, too.

    As I wrote before, these are "Windows 10 Updates". And You can hide these updates.

    The goal of this Update Pack 4 Online is, I do not want to force people to anything, even if these "Windows 10 Updates" are already included in CU. This can consider, in some way, stupid, because "W10 updates" are (mostly, I think) inside CU.

    I do not to want force people to restart, too, even if they have to restart, to make WU to work. It is Your computer, not mine.

    @3zero3 Sorry if I express myself wrong. I did not want to force you to do anything, I was just relating my experience installing the pack, which by the way is very good, I had no problem, I install the W10 and MRT updates from WU, by the way I wish you luck and I am sure that the package it will get better over time. My sincere apologies.

    We have some misunderstandings here. Maybe because of my crapinglish. :)

    When I said, I do not want to force people to, e. g. restart PC, I meant, that I do not want to be like Windows, forcing people to restart their PCs.

    Some people think that these "Windows 10 Updates" are bad and because of that fact, these updates are not included in UP4O.

    If I add "W10 updates", with or without their knowledge, some people will start to think that UP4O is something bad, even if these update are inside CU.

    My goal is not to make something bad. Or sound bad. I hope that I am clearer now.

    for the last two month i could not install or uninstall any update due a weird issue :)

    it's related to updates security catalogs, they cannot be removed or added to databbase
    Code:
    CryptCATAdminRemoveCatalog returned error: 0x000006B5 = RPC_S_UNKNOWN_IF = The interface is unknown.
    the database log list various errors with same code
    C:\Windows\System32\catroot2\dberr.txt
    Code:
    CatalogDB: 6:55:04 PM 2020/9/7: catdbcli.cpp at line #626 encountered error 0x000006b5
    CatalogDB: 6:55:04 PM 2020/9/7: catadnew.cpp at line #1950 encountered error 0x000006b5
    CatalogDB: 6:55:04 PM 2020/9/7: catadnew.cpp at line #869 encountered error 0x000006b5
    CatalogDB: 6:55:04 PM 2020/9/7: catdbcli.cpp at line #567 encountered error 0x000006b5
    CatalogDB: 6:55:04 PM 2020/9/7: catadnew.cpp at line #713 encountered error 0x000006b5
    i tried several fixing attempts, no avail
    sfc /scannow
    dism /restorehealth
    repair {F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}\catdb
    rebuild {F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}\catdb
    regsvr32 crypt and rpc binaries
    rebuild NTFS transaction log and USN journal

    i think the real cause is in RPC run-time library registry, not cryptography service
    but i don't know how to check or fix that

    does anyone have a suggestion before i format and clean install? it's been 3 years since i did it
    in-place upgrade is out of scope, it cause more issues than fixing
