    Using Windows Update for Windows 10 21H2, I installed KB5010342 and KB5011352. No problems noted for me.

      Clarifying information: Belarc Advisor shows KB5011352 is now installed but Windows History does not. Current release is Windows 10 Home (x64) Version 21H2 (build 19044.1526)

    My 2022Std test servers lists KB5009470 not as for ARM64 as listed in the article, but as
    2022-02 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8 for Microsoft server operating system version 21H2 for x64 (KB5009470)

    the above .Net patch was installed along with the
    2022-02 Cumulative Update for Microsoft server operating system version 21H2 for x64-based Systems (KB5010354)
    no problems so far

    I am still confused about KB5011258 & KB5009470
    both are listed as released on Feb 4 2022 at
    https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=5009470 & https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB5011258

    but the article https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/february-8-2022-kb5009470-cumulative-update-for-net-framework-3-5-and-4-8-for-microsoft-server-operating-system-version-21h2-c4c87f0a-3ec2-4a0a-8a57-cc5fbe4c8a5a lists KB5009470 claims that KB5009470 was released on Feb 8 2022 while its Summary does not mention DS, but says This update is cumulative and contains all previously released security improvements.

    Does KB5009470 contain KB5011258 fixes, or that out-of-band fix for DS needs to be applied separately

    More about KB5011258 and other OOB .Net updates can be found at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-health/status-windows-server-2022

    I had one helluva time trying to install the 2022-02 cumulative update for windows 10
    version 21h1 for x64 based systems KB5010342. Installation would proceed to 20% then
    just stop; for over 30 minutes there was no progress. After about 15 more minutes I just
    turned off my PC and went to bed. My level of frustration was pegged at EPIC
    The next morning when I booted up there was a error message that Windows Update failed
    to installed. DUH
    I searched online and found https://howtofixwindows.com/windows-10-update-fails-to-install/
    followed the directions, and it finally installed.
    One strange thing: When I went to turn off BITS it was already off, or disabled. I enabled it after
    I deleted everything in the Download folder and proceeded to reboot.
