While this is only a small sample, we’re not too surprised by these findings, and it’s likely that it reflects the general unpopularity of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update.
The Windows 10 October 2018 Update has been plagued by problems since it launched late last year. A number of serious issues, including reports of the update deleting users’ files, meant the update was delayed until December.
The almost constant stream of bad news about the update is very likely the reason why people have been putting off installing the update.
With the Windows 10 April 2019 Update coming soon, we might see many people skip the October 2018 Update altogether and simply wait for the next update. The April 2019 Update should bring all of the features (and hopefully none of the problems) that came with the October 2018 Update.
