Does Windows 10 1909 require full reinstallation to upgrade from version 1809 or earlier?

Best answer: Yes, if you’re running an older version, such as the October 2018 Update, version 1809, or earlier release, the upgrade process using Windows Update, Media Creation Tool, or Update Assistant will require full reinstallation. However, if you’re already running version 1903, May 2019 Update, then using Windows Update will not require full reinstallation to upgrade to version 1909.
