The latest feature update to Windows 10 i.e. the October update would begin rollout from today i.e. October 2nd 2018.  The rollout would be in a phased approach where the update would roll down as it becomes available to your device as when the Microsoft update systems thinks it is safe to update.

If you want to update now, Microsoft has provided Media creation tool and the update assistant to upgrade manually. Go to the Page below and select Download tool now:

Here is a direct download link if required:

https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=691209

Select Update this PC at the first screen to start download and Installation of the update.

What's the rush? Conventional wisdom has always been to wait weeks or months before installing an upgrade. My computer will wait at least 90 days.

1809 has arrived, & installed well for me through Windows Update. But try it this way...

(1) Block "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1809" with WUShowHide...

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3183922/how-to-temporarily-prevent-a-windows-update-from-reinstalling-in-windo

How to temporarily prevent a Windows Update from reinstalling in Windows 10

You've got to catch it trying to come in. But skip this step, if it isn't there.

(2) Make a Windows system image, at "START, Settings, Update & Security, Backup, Go to Backup & Restore (Win 7)", in case things get bad. Make the Repair Disc to restore it with, or ask Cortana for "Recovery Drive" to make it on USB. Also, see...

https://www.winhelp.us/restore-a-system-image-in-windows-7.html

Restore a System Image Backup in Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10

Note: That's a 3rd-party site. The literature looks good. I know nothing of the links or downloads there.

(3) Try the quick fixes here...

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/upgrade/quick-fixes

Quick Fixes

But be aware the ChkDsk "quick fix" can run for many hours. Maybe just do the Windows version in the Properties of C:\ at the Tools tab. That ran 8/so minutes for me...

(4) If they exist: Use Disk Cleanup (ask Cortana) to delete $Windows.~BT, $Windows.~WS & Windows.old. Those will be in the categories "Windows update cleanup" & "Previous Windows installation(s)", after clicking "Clean up system files". A successful upgrade creates them, but normally Windows will delete them after as little as 10 days. The first two accomplish the upgrade. Windows.old is actually the previous OS.

(5) Try this way to upgrade to 1809, from Installation media...

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Download Windows 10 -  Currently, this is v.1809

Make a Win 10 Installation USB drive or burn an .iso to DVD. As the article says, match it to the Edition (Home, Pro, etc.), Language, & Architecture (64-bit/x64 or 32-bit/x86) of the computer on which it will be installed.

Instructions are at the site how to use those to do an upgrade. Basically, you boot to Windows, plug in the media, open it in File Explorer, & click Setup.exe. It will run a bit over an hour. Here is an article...

How to Do a Repair Install of Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

Good luck, & keep us informed.

1809 did wipe 1803 restore points. But the upgrade did not disable System Protection for me, at "START, Settings, System, About, System info". A day later, an automatic restore point was made...

This update deletes all restore points and disable system protection ...

Correct ... it's supposed to delete all pre-existing restore points. You wouldn't want to restore an earlier restore point. That would give you a mixture of old and new system files and registry hives that's asking to crash.

Making a system image backup is your best protection - but why not do it every day? It's so easy once you learn how.

I agree, what sort of improvements does 1809 have that can't wait a couple months or so until more bugs are exposed and fixed? I don't plan on installing the upgrade for at least several weeks on any PC on mine. I do not care to be the beta tester who faces problems and has to wait for a fix. So far I am not very impressed that this upgrade is really solid for everyone.

Having the same problem and tried almost all the solutions offered in this forum but none of them worked for me. This is very unfortunate. One of my PCs fails with a, error number but some are not even detecting the update.

I tried manual Windows Updater, Update Trouble Shooter, Remove/Rename folders from PowerShell but none worked. 

I think this is the first time Microsoft spoiled this up.

As Sumit-Windows Insider MVP said, it is a phased-in approach. So, not all computers get it at once. Try it the way I said. It was a 2.5 hour experience getting it from Windows Update, but will likely run quicker done manually.

And it is a good idea to make that system image, either the way I posted or as DavidBaileyyz did. 3rd-party image makers are quicker, make more compact images & are more flexible. But I doubt they make the shadow copies that activates the Previous Versions option in a file's (or C:'s) Properties (or right-click menu). That is a way to recover individual files from an image without mounting it or even plugging in the external HDD that holds the image...

But all of them will let you mount the image of C: & enable you to copy files off it.
