Window Update has tried to install Windows 10 Insider Preview 10.0.18342.8 (19h1_release)

I am currently on v1809 build 17763.316 and while checking for updates it flagged Windows 10 Insider Preview 10.0.18342.8 (19h1_release) update. The first time it seemed to update correctly - checked with Winver and it displayed the new version. I decided to recheck with Windows Update and it again downloaded and installed Windows 10 Insider Preview 10.0.18342.8 (19h1_release). And again downloaded and install this time my version show my original 17763.316.

Anyway, It has now tried to download and install the new versions 3 times.

System has been stable and no recent install other than antivirus updated for Defender.

Any ideas?

My system is a HP Envy AIO 34.

This happened to me 3 different times... ON the fourth (4th) time I first turned off windows defender, then redownloaded and installed and it all worked great.  I turned windows defender back on after reboot and all is well.  I now have 18342.8 installed....
