A few weeks ago I wrote the following to members of a certain Windows 10 list:
Do NOT force Version 2004 (May 2020 Update) on your system unless you have clear justifications. If you do check for updates and you get a message that your system isn’t quite ready for Version 2004, take the advice as is. May 2020 Update is still being deployed as Microsoft expands availability based on feedback and telemetry from early adopters. At the moment May 2020 Update is blocked on devices with certain software and hardware configurations.
Also, there are reports that if you do upgrade using installation media, some people will get a message that the system being upgraded isn’t compatible with Version 2004.

I did mean 2004. I guess I will have to hire someone to fix this problem. The 2004 update is not here. This computer was bought new in 2018.

19-09 update? Don't you mean 20-04?
1. Press Windows Key + Shift +I to open the Windows Settings pane.
2. In the search field, type update and press the Down Arrow Key until you hear "Windows update," then press ENTER.
You're now in the dialog where you can do things like check for updates, pause updates for seven days, etc.
If you press the "Check for updates" button and your system tells you you're up to date, then there's something either on or in your system that can't be updated to the latest version of Windows 10, or any later versions than your current version for that matter.
You also may not be getting updated because during the hours you've chosen for those updates to be applied, your computer is off or offline. You can force the update(s) to happen by tabbing through the updates dialog and finding a list of available updates chosen for your system, then tabbing to the download or "install" button immediately after that list.
