Here we can see “Windows 10 may update Qualcomm”
Microsoft Fixes Windows 10 Qualcomm wifi Driver Update Block.
Microsoft has removed a compatibility hold that forestalls users from upgrading to Windows 10 1903 and Windows 1909 if they’re using older Qualcomm wifi drivers.
Redmond first applied this updated block on May 21, 2019, after users reported that they were experiencing sporadic loss of wifi connectivity after upgrading to Windows 10 1903.
Those suffering from the hold would not be offered the May 2019 Update (Windows 10 1903) and the November 2019 Update (Windows 10 1909) when checking for brand spanking new updates.
Users would even be shown a message if they attempted to use the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant or the Media Creation Tool explaining that they have to put in a replacement version of the Qualcomm wifi drive to continue.
Microsoft has started pushing out an updated Qualcomm wifi driver to affected users to resolve this issue, which will allow them to put in the newest Windows 10 feature updates.
“This issue was resolved with an updated Qualcomm wifi driver and therefore the safeguard hold has been removed. “
While Microsoft has removed the safeguard hold, customers should know that “it can take up to 48 hours before you’ll update to offered Windows 10, version 1903 or Windows Server, version 1903.”
If users aren’t automatically offered the driving force, you’ll try the subsequent steps as another method to receive the updated wifi driver.
- Select Start or the search box up the taskbar.
- Type “device manager” within the search field and choose Device Manager when it appears.
- Within Device Manager, find Network adapters and expand them to ascertain all the currently installed adapters.
- Right-click the Qualcomm adapter and choose Update driver.
- When prompted, select Search automatically for updated drivers on the dialogue that opens.
- Wait for the update to finish. If it says, “The best driver for your device is already installed.” then the driving force wasn’t updated. If the driving force was updated, you should now be ready to Check for Updates and install the newer version of Windows 10.
If this still doesn’t work, you’ll read this guide from Microsoft to find out about an alternate method of receiving the Qualcomm driver.
This past week, Microsoft also placed a compatibility hold on users of older versions of Avast and AVG Antivirus. To resolve that safeguard, users are required to upgrade to newer versions of the antivirus software.

Somehow I removed the Bluetooth drivers. However, I even have received the Windows Update showing the Bluetooth Drivers from Qualcomm. So, I attempted installing them, but mid-way, it shows the above error. So, I’m ready to install all other updates.
