Downloaded and installed on two computers without any problems. Just wondering on checking the version number after installing it's shown as 20H2 instead of 2009 ?? All previous versions were shown as like 1809, 1903, 1909, 2004 etc.

Same here, Peter!

Re: 20H2, the name change was announced in June. Expect the same in the future as well for the second update of the year.

What’s next for Windows 10 updates | Windows Experience Blog

With this release, we will also simplify our approach to numerical versions for Windows and move to a format that represents the half of the calendar year in which the release becomes available in retail and commercial channels. Windows 10, version 20H2 is, therefore, “20H2” because it will be released in the second half of the 2020 calendar year. This is a familiar approach for our Windows Insiders and is designed to provide consistency in our version names across releases for our commercial customers and partners. (Note: We will continue to use a friendly name, such as the May 2020 Update, in consumer communications.)

I downloaded and installed the 2009 update. Completely lost all sound. 

Went to task manager--under System Devices a red X on Intel Smartsound SST OED. Normally in Task Manager under "Sound, Video and Game Controllers" there are five entries including Realtek HD Audio--all of them completely disappeared except the two Nvidia entries.

Called support--we tried reinstalling the latest sound drivers from HP (I have a 17" Omen Laptop) and it said the drivers would not support this version of Windows.

Finally the support guy had me roll back the update. Back up and running now on version 2004.

Not fun.

Thank you for reporting. By any chance, did you add a Feedback Hub entry in 20H2? If so, please share the Feedback link so that I can send it to the relevant people.

You mean you clicked on it and THIS didn't happen?

Then you may need to run SFC /SCANNOW and DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth && DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
