    I have two similar Dell computers both operating Windows 10. One is up to date (1809) and the other is not (1803). Is the one not updating as it should or is the other updating because it is an "Insider".

    The one in the shop is seldom online if that has anything to do with it. Howevere, I do check for updates periodically and it declares that it is up to date.

    There are probably still millions of Windows 10 machines out there that have not received the update from 1803 to 1809.
    It's a staged roll-out and not all receive it at the same time, in some instances it might be months before your 1803 machine receives the upgrade through the normal windows update procedure.
    All Windows Insider machines should be on 1809 even those on the Release Preview Ring are running 1809 just not the 19H1 version yet.

    Thank you for the feed back.

    Not sure exactly what happened but after being asked for a MS password update, the shop computer is performing an update to 1809. It has been in process for about 20 minures.

    No idea what that even is or why or who asked you.

    From your lips to Bill's ears I guess.

    I got a popup that read something like, "Your system is out of date. Please reenter your MS password". I did that and have done this before. With the pass word entered, the system is operational.

    I have been tinkering back and forth with the two computers. I assume that I changed the pass word on one and failed to do so on the other.
