Microsoft announced to pospone the February 2017 security update release.
UPDATE: 2/15/17: We will deliver updates as part of the planned March Update Tuesday, March 14, 2017.
Our top priority is to provide the best possible experience for customers in maintaining and protecting their systems. This month, we discovered a last minute issue that could impact some customers and was not resolved in time for our planned updates today.
After considering all options, we made the decision to delay this month’s updates. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change to the existing plan.
This decision leave some open points like why they moved all MS patches ?
And also we have to consider that this decision has left a zero day vulnerability without any patch.

I suppose the updates contain serious bugs. Maybe Microsoft new update pace is just too ambitious. The complexity of Windows is growing with every new feature which increases the likelihood for bugs. Sometimes I think Microsoft should start from scratch with a new OS leaving all the legacy behind.
