REACTIVATE Windows 10 version 1809

I downloaded Windows 10 version 1809 through Windows Updates. Everything was working great.

I had an issue with Disk Cleanup and I reverted to an earlier version of Windows 10 trying to find a restore point.

Went back to Windows Update trying to reinstall version 1809. Windows Updates said I was up to date.

Looking at my Update history it shows that version 1809 was successfully installed 10/3/2018.

Below that, history showed that version 1803 was successfully installed 10/3/2018.

Now I am running version 1803, can not find a way to get back to 1809 and can not reinstall because

Update history says I already have it.

How can I configure Windows 10 to let me access and run version 1809 which is installed but being overridden by

version 1803. Update history is showing 1803 as being installed after 1809.

I tried uninstalling version 1803. Went back to Windows Update and it told me I had updates available.

Problem is it wanted to install 1803 again.

I cancelled that. System says it is running version 1803 with 1809 installed. How do I get the new version back?

Yea. This is crazy and it's my fault. Thanks for any help.
