It appears that the glitch I had in August was a one-time occurrence.

My computer was turned off for a while and I just did the September update package (flash and cumulative updates)

And then I was immediate told of another update that needs to be installed for

Win 10 1803 x64 systems:  KB4100347

Which is a different number than listed above.  I did download the update, but before I install it, I wanted to ask a question:

When I looked up the KB number, it indicates it is an Intel update related to the Spectre malware:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4100347/intel-microcode-updates-for-windows-10-version-1803-and-windows-server

I remember reading that installing the processor fixes can cause performance issues. So before going ahead with the update, I want to be aware of what might await me.

Input please,  Landzdown wizards....

For what its worth, the revised update was installed on my laptop with the latest September updates and I haven't had any issues.

In the case of the Windows 10 version 1803 update KB4458469, the link has been modified to include the following:

"This update has been re-released because of a missing solution. If you installed build 17134.319, please install this newer version of OS build 17134.320."

Thanks, that explains it.
I was a little puzzled as to why I had the same update listed twice in my "update history".
