Like previous updates, Microsoft is rolling this one out in stages, and you might not see it instantly on your machine. You can check Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update to see if the update is listed. If it’s not listed, there is another way to force your PC to get the latest update.

If you want to get an ISO and wipe your machine, you can simply download the Media Creation Tool from Microsoft’s website and create a bootable USB key to clean install the latest Windows 10 May 2019 Update.
If you get an error during install, check for BattlEye
Microsoft is also blocking machines with older versions of the BattlEye anti-cheat software installed. This seems to be a fairly widespread block right now. If you hit an error saying you can’t upgrade, it’s worth checking to see if you have any games that haven’t been updated recently. Alternatively, you can also uninstall BattlEye (removal .exe tool) and then reopen your game to get the latest version.

Also, make sure you don’t have any USB storage devices like an external USB device or SD memory card attached during the installation of the May 2019 Update, as there’s an unusual block in this update.
