Windows 10 October Update available for all

As of today, Windows 10 October [err November] 2018 Update [a.k.a. version 1809] should now available to download an install for anyone.

Generally, Microsoft rolls out feature updates first to highly compatible systems [i.e. those that are quite recent] while they diagnose and try to fix systems that failed to update correctly [from their diagnostics]. So this news is a change and risky.

To manually update, open up the Settings app. Then go to the Update & Security section, and finally check for updates to receive the October 2018 update.

Those who manually update may get the update that may not successfully install.

If you recall in a blog posting back in July, I tried to update my v1709 [October 2017 update] build to the v1803 [April 2018] build and I had issues with my webcam [don’t use much], audio card [I use that!] and the opening screen [just before you log in]. I reverted back to v1709 and have been stuck there ever since. I have Windows 10 Pro. So I can delay the feature update but unsure if I can delay this one now.
