Microsoft has resumed the roll-out of Windows 10 October Update, Version 1809, which was halted while it investigated the reported loss of data from users.

Having tested the update, Microsoft has decided to roll out the update much more slowly. It'll also check for compatibility, and if incompatibility is found the update won't be installed.
Users can manually check for updates, but even that is being throttled so that Microsoft can monitor the progress of the update.

Te company is also planning on adding a Windows update status dashboard "within the coming year."
For our commercial customers, the re-release date of the Windows 10 version 1809 will also be today, November 13, 2018 (this includes Windows Server 2019 and Windows Server, version 1809).

I spoke to several admins with large installs who are going to wait at least another month before letting this one loose with their users.

One of my machines just got the treatment. I took a chance and we'll see how it fares. All seems well right now, so i'm confident they have fixed the issues Microsoft had with the previous updates.
Time will tell.

Several phones and small laptops all updated seemingly without any issues, at the moment.
