  2. Hi Anoop,

    I have installed latest hotfix kb4490575 on my SCCM 1810 branch, the installation shows successful but when i checked in “Show Status” it shows post check installation still in progress.

    I have checked all respective log files but nothing unusual found. Please let me know what we can do to fix this “Post Installation in progress issue”

    1) Hotfix shows installed successfully on both the level
    A) Monitoring – update and servicing status – select update package name “…1810 hotfix kb4490575” – show status (update pack installation status)
    B) Administration – update and servicing – Installed (status)
    2) Done multiple reboot and also note the previous hotfix kb4490434 installed successfully
