For this update, I will wait a bit, but if it won't come up in a
few days, I will likely force it. Also, getting a new computer,
and will download the 2009 iso and directly install that.

Actually it's not really weird at all, but an evolution
in the workings of Windows Update. Fully automatic updates
without user intervention are now a thing of the past unless
someone keeps a version on their machine that is actually going
out of support. Windows Update itself interrogates the actual
computer it's on to determine the hardware profile, and depending
on that hardware profile, it will or will not be added to an
update cohort where a Feature Update is offered for the user to Download
and install. There have even been instances where a
Feature Update has been offered, but the offer not taken up by the
end user, and it gets retracted for a time because some "late
breaking problem" has been identified that was not known for that
hardware profile previously.
Check for Updates as a way to force update has been
eliminated, too. The only two ways I know of to force update are
using the Update Assistant or the Win10 ISO file to do a feature
update, neither of which is a good idea in the early days of any
Feature Update release.
As has been said on many occasions, by many other
than myself, best practice with regard to Feature Updates is to do
an occasional check of the Windows Update pane to see if it's been
offered. Then, and only then, and preferably after having done a
full system image update, should the Download and install
link be activated to apply the Feature Update.
