Microsoft is notifying users if Windows 10 May 2020 Update is blocked on their systems

Earlier this week, Microsoft started rolling out the Windows 10 May 2020 Update to all supported Windows 10 users. The update comes with new features and improvements for Windows 10 users.

While Microsoft released the first 20H1 Insider build almost 15 months ago, the update still has some known bugs. Microsoft has catalogued these bugs on its known issues page and has blocked the update on the affected devices. Earlier it was hard to know if a particular system has been blocked since Windows Updates used to show a vague "You're up to date" message. Now, Microsoft has made a small change to the Windows Update page. If a system is blocked due to a known issue, the user will see the following message on the update page:

The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is on its way. We’re offering this update to compatible devices, but your device isn’t quite ready for it. Once your device is ready, you’ll see the update available on this page. There’s nothing you need to do at this time.

The new change offers more transparency and lets the user know that the system is currently not compatible with the update. Furthermore, it also ensures that users don't circumvent the block using an ISO which may cause system instability due to unsupported hardware.

Microsoft recently published the release information pages for Windows 10 May 2020 Update. The release information pages provide updated information about the known and resolved issues. If the May 2020 Update is blocked on your system, you will see a 'Learn More' button which will take you to the known issues page for May 2020 Update.
