Hi Kasinath

I am Dave, an Independent Advisor, I will help you with this . . .

Yes, KB4584229 is a legitimate Microsoft Edge update and will bring your Windows 10 Build No. to 19041.601, I checked that in my update history

That update is no longer listed on the Microsoft Catalog page, that must be now superseded with another update . . .

Rest assured, any update that appears in the list of Pending updates came from Microsoft, you do not need to worry about anything in that list, the only updates you should not install are the Preview and optional updates, unless you are experiencing problems with your Windows installation . . .

This is the answer why one should never take advice from an independent advisor as they have mostly no clue what they are talking about.

KB4584229 is a Microsoft EDGE update, an update which gets the BROWSER up-to-date. It has absolutely nothing to do with a system update and definitely will not increase the build# to 19041.601 as there was never such a build unless one is a member of the INSIDERS.

The cumulative update that brings the build# to 19041.610 is KB4580364 and was released October,29th 2020 . This has nothing to do with EDGE....
