Hi bryan

Yes you can go directly to 1809, it is best to do that, and bypass 1803 . . .

Click the link below, then click 'Update Now' on that page to immediately get 1809 and bring your PC right up to date

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo...


If you have any problem using the method above, the most successful method is to upgrade from the Windows 10 ISO - you download the ISO and then perform an Offline Upgrade

Click this link:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo...
to download the Media Creation Tool (Click on Download Tool Now), with that you can download the latest Windows 10 ISO (Select Create Installation Media for Another PC), then choose ISO

When the ISO file completes downloading

Disconnect from the Internet

Temporarily disable any 3rd party Anti-virus you may have installed

Then, double click the ISO and then run Setup.exe to begin the upgrade . . .

Hi,
sure you may upgrade to 1809 but please see https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/201...
The first principle of a feature update rollout is to only update devices that our data shows will have a good experience. One of our most recent improvements is to use a machine learning (ML) model to select the devices that are offered updates first. If we detect that your device might have an issue, we will not offer the update until that issue is resolved.

Unfortunately I do not now how one can get information about he's current status.
