August 2019 CU for SharePoint 2013 product family is available for download

The product group released the August 2019 Cumulative Update for the SharePoint 2013 product family.

For August 2019 CU we have full server packages (also known as Uber packages). No other CU is required to fully patch SharePoint.

As this is a common question: Yes, August 2019 CU includes all fixes from August 2019 PU.


Be aware that all Updates for SharePoint 2013 require SharePoint Server 2013 SP1 to be installed first.

Please also have a look at the article that discusses how to properly patch a SharePoint 2013 farm which has Search enabled (see below).

Previous releases of the SharePoint Server 2013 cumulative update included both the executable and the .CAB file in the same self-extracting executable download. Because of the file size, the SharePoint Server 2013 package has been divided into several separate downloads. One contains the executable file, while the others contain the CAB file. All are necessary and must be placed in the same folder to successfully install the update. All are available by clicking the same Hotfix Download Available link in the KB article for the release.

This CU includes all SharePoint 2013 fixes (including all SharePoint 2013 security fixes) released since SP1. The CU does not include SP1. You need to install SP1 before installing this CU.

After installing the fixes you need to run the SharePoint 2013 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm. If you prefer to run the command line version psconfig.exe ensure to have a look here for the correct Options.

Be aware that the SharePoint Server 2013 CU contains the SharePoint Foundation 2013 CU. And the Project Server 2013 CU also contains the SharePoint Server 2013 CU and SharePoint Foundation 2013 CU.

    1. Hi Dean, I cannot find the incorrect link in the article you mentioned.
      Can you please double check?


  1. Hello Stefan. First of all, thank you for your great work. Are there any reports of the 2013 Central Admin landing page coming back with Server Tag Errors? It’s easily fixed by running psconfigui.exe instead of psconfig, There is a new upgrade to 2016 banner now appearing just below the Health Analyser section. Just wondering is this is a known “surprise” or if our farms are a little quirky.


    1. What is the exact psconfig.exe command you were running?


  2. While installing KB4475560 I receive the message : “Please wait while the update detection is being run” and then immediately after that the error message “The installation of this package failed”. Has anyone else run into this issue?


    1. Hi Bob,
      this is not a common issue. You should check the MSI logs to see what is going wrong.
      If you need assistance for this I would recommend to open a support case with Microsoft.


  3. Hi Stefan,
    Thanks much for your blogs for the CUs every month. I have been installing SharePoint 2013 cumulative updates for some time now. my issue is that it always takes a couple of hours to install them on my servers. I have recently started stopping some services such us the SharePoint admin, the sharepoint timer , and the IIS admin services. This has helped a little,, but the installs still take up to 4 hours to complete on each server. Anything else I should be doing to help things speed up?
