The thing is that if you have iCloud already installed on your system, you will, unfortunately, see that you can not install the October 2018 update.

Add one more problem to the Windows 10 October 2018 Update pile. You'll also have trouble if you have F5 VPN software installed.

Windows Update won't offer you the October 2018 Update if you have Apple iCloud installed. Users who try to open it on machines running this build (1809) have reportedly found themselves incapable of syncing their iClouds or using them to update Shared Albums.

This information comes from Microsoft's own Windows 10 Update History page, where Microsoft is publicly tracking the October Update's bugs.

Previously when Windows 10 released their update version 1809, users reported several problems such as missing files after the update that can not be revered and also the faster battery consumption of their devices.

If we detect that your device may have an issue, such as an application incompatibility, we will not install the update until that issue is resolved, even if you "Check for updates", so you avoid encountering any known problems.
The issue is dated as on November 16 and is affecting Windows 10, version 1809 (October update), Windows Server 2019 and Windows Server version 1809.

On 10th October 2018, Microsoft released the latest update for Windows 10. The company said they are working with Apple to ensure a fix to the same is available soon. This means that people attempting to install iCloud on a new system right after downloading the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, for example, won't be able to access the service without having to resort to a web browser.
