        Paul Thurrot caught this – it went right over my head. If you’re one of the (16 million?) folks in the Windows marketing beta… er, Windows Insider p

        MS doesn’t want you to get the notice. That’s why it’s done that way.
        It’s the same way they are handling the updates – reissue with the same KB number.
        They want you to get used to the fact that, what happens, happens.
        And you didn’t have any say in the matter anyway, so you don’t need notices.

        Paul nails it:

        Last night, Microsoft updated a blog post that was originally posted 11 days earlier. This marks the second time they’ve released news to this post by editing the post, and the company seems to be clueless about the fact that these updates are basically sent into a black hole: Without issuing a new post, no one will ever be alerted to the news.

        It wasn’t new news yesterday. The news was already in that original blog post 12 days ago:

        Check your Windows Insider Program settings
        With the Windows 10 November 2019 Update now being finalized, we are planning to move Windows Insiders in the Slow ring forward to 20H1. We are looking to make this change in the coming weeks. Now is the time for you to verify your desired Windows Insider Program settings by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Insider Program to ensure you are on the ring you want to be on before this change occurs. If you are an Insider who wishes to remain on the November 2019 Update – you will want to switch to the Release Preview ring.

        There was an additional hint was in the 10/21 update:

        You will need to switch to the Release Preview ring as recommended in the below blog post

        I kinda feel sorry for those insiders who were on the build 18362.100xx version and it looks like they’ll be pushed out of it soon (that build was a “mock” build for 19H2 before it was RTMed)

        Been trying to get 2003 on an ancient  Samsung laptop currently on 1903 using manual update with metered connection off and thumb drive  out. So far, it managed other updates that get restricted by metered connection but it is not sucking up 2003.

          There is no 2003, and 1903 is the latest version of Windows 10 (outside of Insider rings), so it’s not clear what you’re trying to get.
