Again, MS have moved a few things around. Not sure , but Troubles tutorial might do it. Are you on "Auto login"? I think that might override the appearance of the option.
Also, I read that you have to have a local account WITH a password, to see the old option. Doesn't make sense, but I am just quoting.

I have the latest version available, and I, also, do not have the option as shown in Trouble's first screen. I do NOT have a local account.

The OP is still missing something as his version varies to mine:

Nothing significant on the web as to why some users should not have it
I don't think the version number is significant. Must be something else in personal configuration. You can change it in GPEdit, but I prefer never to mess with that.

That is what I meant by auto log in. But I have been playing with it, and it is not the culprit. I have also tried with a local account - still no change.
I do have my hd configured to never stop, which I would imagine could be never sleep (?) - Not much purpose served having an ssd sleeping

You need to check your updates, there are some that are not automatic and you have to manually click on them to download and install them:

You are still missing some compared to mine!:

Time and action may prove me wrong, but I don’t think updating will solve his query.

I have the exact same problems. I've read through the replies and my answers to questions posed are the same as yours. Have you found a resolution elsewhere, please post it here? I'll be looking as well. Thanks.

I have not.
I did get rid of the lock screen but i haven't found anywhere how i can remove the login screen. I am sure there are many people who don't really need it and there should be an option not to show that but Billy is busy with spending his money.

I had a very similar issue, and I managed to solve it earlier today. Try the following:
1. Make sure you are signing in with a local account
2. Remove the account data - I did this, but I am not sure if it's necessary
3. Now you should be able to disable Windows Hello and the associated PIN (if these are enabled).
4. Click on password and try to change it. Type in your old password and leave everything else blank! Do NOT choose a new password. Reboot.
This worked for me and hope this also help for you.
