[00:06] Process these procedures carefully before upgrading to 1903 build, it renders BSOD on my laptop Intel N3450, luckily, I early created a recovery USB stick to recover the Windows OS back!
It’s not the perfect time to upgrade your Windows 10 to the 1903 build yet, that because of the large variants of Windows editions as well as hardware specification. You may see the Pro Education version has no support channel to upgrade yet, that why Windows Update offers no option to upgrade as well as via the log of this Update Assistant, we know there is no file to download for the Education edition at this moment.

Old method still uses the static links for the Enterprise EVAL ISOs to download as source.
Then downloads the SVF to create the en-us Consumer or Business ISO from it.
When source was created properly it will download the SVF for the chosen language and create the ISO.

[01:39] It is recommended that you purchase a certificated Windows setup/upgrade medium from a technical shop, for directly from laptop/desktop vendors like ASUS, HP, Dell, Acer. Check out their support website, or shop the tools here:

The drive of the specified mount path is not supported. Please mount to a volume on a fixed drive.
The DISM log file can be found at C:\Windows\Logs\DISM\dism.log
[04:19] “This Error is related to the fact that the FAT32-Filesystem misses abilities that the dism-Tool uses to mount a WIM-Imagefile into a directory. The script creates a temporary folder in the folder/drive of the installation media to do the mounting and so the Filesystem of the location of the installation media matters. Also the install.wim Image file grows while patching and may breaks the 4GB file size limit of the FAT32-Filesystem” -- github.com

You will need 8 GB free space of the System drive C: and 10+ GB external storage to make this Update Assistant work. again, you have to buy a raw USB or SD card.
Install Windows 10
Windows Setup will go online to get updates, drivers and optional features. These updates will help the installation go smoothly, and can include important fixes, updated device drivers and additional files which are not on the installation media.

What needs your attention
The following things need your attention to continue the installation and keep your Windows settings, personal files and apps.
Why am I seeing this?
Continuing with the installation of Windows will change your display language. To change it back, you’ll need to reinstall the language pack.
Select or connect an external storage device with at least 10.0 GB free
Use an external device such as a USB key, SD card or external hard drive to temporarily extend your hard drive while the updates are being installed. Windows will not reformat your external storage device and you can remove it after installation is complete.

Windows needs space to update
We can’t install the latest Windows 10 features and security improvements on your PC due to low disk space. Free up some space below and then select Refresh.
Free up MB on your PC (C: drive)
-- Empty your Recycle Bin to remove deleted files from your system drive.
-- Remove large or unused files from your Downloads folder.
-- Manually explore your storage usage in settings to remove other large items.
I choose the safest solution to upgrade to Windows 1903 by creating for myself a bootable/recovery USB stick. Moreover, you can reduce installation time because an offline upgrade does not deal with further external storage like Update Assistant.
Trust me, after upgrading to 1903. I have BSOD issue that needs the USB stick to uninstall latest security update then remove corrupted drivers through Safe Mode.
