Freshly installed 2019 Windows server ISSUES. (build version mismatch, *some settings are managed.....)



I am facing some annoying issues on freshly installed Windows Server 2019 Standard.


1 thing is that I downloaded and installed it from official ISO:



it clearly says 1909 ... but still after installation it shows 1809.. ? why?


there are already versions 1903 and 1909 ... but there is no option to update .. and no clear informations on ms sites ? 100 pages of details but NO CLEAR INFORMATION how it works and why.


next thing is that I have this annoying "*some settings are managed by your organization" notification ?

why this shows up ? it is freshly installed system, locally, workgroup, no domain, no organization ?


any hints and explanations very appreciated, thanks.

Ok I figured out how to get rid of the "*some settings are managed by your organization" notification from updates... regedit -> LocalMachine - Software - Policies - Microsoft - Windows -WindowsUpdate -AU ... and delete AUoptions key.... I still did not figure out why my 1909 build is 1809 .. and why freshly installed windows got issues which has to be repaired by messing with registry ehh...
