    I wish to know, if you have to download all updates, or only some, before you can update to new major version like 1909. Because there are some bad updates, i use wutm wrapper script and i would rather choose manually.
    Thanks for reply :)

    What version are you on now? Except for Security updates, any others would be cumulative, and would supersede previous. It does depend on what you are on right now what the path would be to 1909.

    Just to add, I recently [last Friday] Upgraded a 1709 computer to 1903, installed its updates then ran the check for updates again and got 1909, fairly smooth but did take awhile, fortunately I planned it to happen when the church office was closed. It appeared Win10 wanted Version 1903 first so some updates for it could be installed to get ready for 1909.

    The update to 1909 is different from all previous feature updates, it is just a small (~20KB) enablement package that turns on the dormant 1909 features that are already in the 1903 code.

    Microsoft said:
    Windows 10, versions 1903 and 1909 share a common core operating system with an identical set of system files. Therefore, the new features in Windows 10, version 1909 were included in the latest monthly quality update for Windows 10, version 1903 (released October 8, 2019), but are in an inactive and dormant state. These new features will remain dormant until they are turned on through the “enablement package,” a small, quick-to-install “master switch” that activates the Windows 10, version 1909 features.

    So, you may well need to update to 1903 first before getting 1909. I have successfully updated a machine from a clean install of 1507 (build 10240) direct to 1903 without installing any of the intervening updates, so whatever version you are on it should be possible to go straight to 1903.

    I'm on 1809, had 1903 waiting to be installed, but now see 1909 replaced 1903. Perhaps installing 1909 includes a 1903 install of some sort.

    Is 1909 stable, ready to go?

    It's as stable as 1903 because it's actually the same code, just with a few new features turned on.

    In addition, you can now use the Windows 10 Update Assistant to directly update to the latest 1909 version of Windows 10.
