Microsoft is still not "done" with Windows 10 "Redstone 4" - the next release of Windows likely to be named Spring Creators Update/1803. Not all users of older Windows versions were forcibly updated, but only those of Windows 10 v1703 (Creators Update).

Microsoft gives users the option to stop getting Windows 10 updates so that the updates will not be downloaded and installed automatically without the knowledge of the users.

Now Microsoft has given an official response to this issue and they have admitted that they are aware of the fact that some PCs received the update notification.

"I have Dell XPS8900 with version 1703 and when the update finished, I had version 1709, but no sound, no color ( everything black and white ), reinstall software notifications and errors saying certain shortcut keys are not available", the user added. What version of Windows are you now using?

The update was also displayed for Windows 10 v1607 and v1703, even if those OS versions are still supported, but as an optional update alert. Microsoft explains that this issue was already fixed. Windows Update will them try to update your device, Windows 10 version 1607 and version 1703 are not yet at "end of service". However, they must update the latest version of Windows 10 to ensure protection from the latest security threats. To switch back, open Settings go to Update & Security, click on Recovery and click Get started from Go back to the previous version of Windows 10. When this update does begin rolling out to the public, it will continue to be supported until October 2019, at which point, users will need to upgrade to a more recent version in order to continue getting important patches. This time, the latest details come directly from Microsoft itself.
