      I’m using win10 ver 1809 build17763.805. Is it time to install servicing stack update 13nov in preparation for ver 1903?

      Belarc tells me its a critical need…..not that I pay too much attn to that source but I guess I might need to get 1903 before 1909 is forced on me?

      Confused…

      Suggest you read woody’s recent Computerworld article on updating options:

      https://www.computerworld.com/article/3481617/running-win10-version-1803-or-1809-you-have-options-heres-how-to-control-your-upgrade.html

      Also, realize that Win10 should install any required SSU for you when you choose to allow your system to update.

      Hope this helps.

        Hello Don.

        Assuming that you’re planning to update your system as described by woody in his article, either via Windows Update or via iso, then you should be ok. (Not sure exactly what you read, but other information may be provided for folks doing manual patching, using updates downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog.)

        Hope this helps.
