For downloading the update, you are going to use Windows Update on your Windows 10. This is a great way to download only the update. As using any third-party application or site, you will be compelled to download other Windows files too.
This can make the size of Windows large. So, to download Windows 10 v1909, you are going to apply these steps. Start button > Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for updates.
Here your system will check for any update; select the update that appeared on your screen. Now download and perform the installation of Windows update files. After the search for Windows files, you will probably find November 2019 Update on your screen.

Here are some direct links that provide the ISO file of Windows 10. Each of the links provides a different version of Windows 10, so chose the version carefully. Download the ISO file then you can use it to create a bootable USB or to perform a clean installation of Windows.
You can use this method if you want to upgrade or install Windows 10. However; if you have already installed Windows on your system then you are recommended to use the other methods.
With Windows Update Assistant, you will be able to download all the required updates on your windows. Download the tool from officials then you will run it. Since the tool doesn’t require any sort of installation, you are going to use it directly.

Once the update is downloaded then you will install it. After the installation, you will reboot your system. This reboot will apply the updates, now you have Windows 10 1909.
Media Creation Tool is another way to download updates. Microsoft Media Creation tool is a powerful tool that can download both Windows 10 and Windows 11. You can even use it to burn any ISO file on a USB.
Download the tool and run it. Like Update Assistant, the Media Creation tool doesn’t require any sort of installation. Run it and you will see a window.

As we mentioned before, the update is a cumulative or service pack update. If you have downloaded it from Setting then you will click on the Install button to perform the installation. A reboot will be required and you have the latest version of Windows.
However; if you have an ISO file then you will need to burn it on a USB. Once the ISO file is burned, you can either perform a clean installation or upgrade your Windows.
No matter which one you choose, you are going to insert the USB. Boot the setup file and then perform the installation.
The only difference between an Upgrade and a clean installation will be to select options while installing it.
To clean install, you will need to select the Custom option instead of Upgrade. And make sure that the disk you have selected for installation is not MBR. Your disk should be GPT, as almost all new OS supports GPT, not MBR.
By any chance, if you have MBR then you are recommended to change it. Then you will install Windows 10 on your system.
