The best option from my perspective is to wait for Microsoft to come back with a clearer answer for a subset of systems. I assume you might not have a larger percentage of systems with this issue. Or raise a ticket with Microsoft support to get an official answer from them.

  1. Interesting I was in the process of creating a fresh 20H2 image WIM file for enterprise injecting KB5003637 cab file with Add-WindowsPackage came back with an error.

    “Package_for_RollupFix~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~19041.1052.1.13” requires Servicing Stack v10.0.19041.903 but current Servicing Stack is v10.0.19041.740

    Downloaded the KB5003637 MSU from the catalogue then extracted , it split the files to SSU-19041.1022-x64.cab and Windows10-KB5003637-x64.cab. I was then able to install the SSU first with the above commands then the CU.

  2. Thank you for posting this information, I’ve had a few devices with this issue and was head scratching a little as to why the June update wouldn’t appear.

    Deployed May, installed & June CU appeared very shortly after a check-in!
