    Hi, I have the same issue. Windows 10 Pro, group policy set to 2. I no longer get notifications that updates are available. I think this issue started as from the 1809 update.
    No, that's just a coincidence. It also happens (or rather the notifications don't happen) in 1803. It must be caused by a patch in a cumulative update from around the same date, the same patch being in the updates for both 1809 and 1803.

    Over the holiday weekend, I visited my parents and they have a Surface with Win 10 Pro, same policy, same issue.

    Is MS already aware of this issue? How best to report this?

    Is it a good idea to use a different setting in the meantime?

    I recently changed the policy to "3 - Auto download and notify for install". That doesn't seem to be working either. I went to updates, it said no updates available. I clicked on check for updates, it showed 4 updates as pending for install, so it had already downloaded them. So, the downloading part is okay for the above policy, but notify is a no go. I'll set the policy to not configured now and see what happens next time...

    @rebop and @Ten Forward,

    Yoy may like to know that I have just had a notification to download, the update waiting to download was a Defender definitions update. This is the first such notification I have seen for a long time. This machine is now on Windows 10 Pro, 1803, 17134.523. The policy was set for "2. Notify for download and auto install".
