    Just to add my two pennyworth, I received the 1809 update from WU on 20th November 2018, so some of us are getting it automatically. Incidentally, my PC's a dinosaur if that has any bearing on the matter!

    Did you click Check for updates? Or did it appear without any action on your part?

    I'm leaving all the machines here to bring it in in their own time. I get other updates with no problems but so far I've not been offered 1809. On this HP Envy 2 in 1 Convertible I'm running Windows 10 Home 1803 17134.407, not sure what version number the other machines are without going to look but they're all running 10 Home 1803.

    There's an Asus Notebook, 2 Acer desktops and a Toshiba laptop.

    some of us have been unintentional beta testers since the beginning of October when it was first (briefly) released. Oddly enough, apart from 'The Big One' (which didn't affect me) it's been one of the least buggy Features Updates I've seen. I've been running 1809 since Oct 2nd with no significant problems. The early 1803 on the other hand was one of the worst IMHO.
    I can't say I'm an unintentional beta tester . . .

    I'm just one of those early beta testers that kept 1809 released October 2 because I wasn't affected by any of the bugs that some had.

    I have Macrium Reflect backups, so I can restore if need be . . . and did once because I "joined the Insiders Preview" which got me to Build 18282 (or something like that) on my Production partition.

    So far, I've gotten updates by "checking for updates" and manually going after 17763.168. Everything is good so far, with no problems on this approximately 5-year-old HP desktop with added RAM, upgraded video card and 500 GB SSD drive.

    I also had a problem with my Brother printer. The 1809 re-release installation put some strange files in the print queue and the printer wouldn't work until I deleted them. The same thing happened when I originally upgraded to 1809 back in October (I had later rolled back to 1803).

    My Canon printer has been running flawlessly.

    I had some and same problems with my HP Lj 1025 printer on both builds, regular and Skippy, resolved only by using universal HP printer driver. It's poor with options but works now. There are some 3rd party printer enhancing programs but it's enough that it works. Haven't tried my older ones HP Lj6 and Lj4M, don't have cartridges for them anyway. HP programs don't work since 1709.
