    I go to windows update per usual, check for updates, but nothing regarding version 1809 shows up, and I confirmed in the about tab that I am on version 1803

    As far as I can gather this update is out and only being blocked if you have iCloud or F5 VPN.

    I do have Kaspersky Secure Connection. I am not sure if I have iCloud installed or not. Searching from windows explorer or the start menu for "iCloud" doesn't return anything.

    Given the litany of issues with the original 1809 roll-out, I'd recommend not bothering with this update for the time being because there are still issues with the updated release. I'm not sure how Microsoft plan to address all these, but the drive mapping problem is particularly irksome from a business perspective.

    On Nov 14, MS re-released Win 10 v1809. It should be OK to install it now.
    If you wait for Windows Update to bring the new version, you could wait a while, it could be a month. To get the new version now, go download MS Media Creation Tool and use it to generate a DVD or USB stick. Then, to do an upgrade, run the setup from the media without booting with it. To do a clean install, boot the media and do a custom install
