According to this document, the Perpetually licensed VLK version of Office 2019 is on version 1808, and has been for years now. I have an ongoing issue with using setup.exe from the Office Deployment Tool where it tells me that I must be on version 1902 or newer. Obviously since 1808 is the highest possible version of the Perpetual channel of Office 2019, this is not possible.
So I am wondering if there is a timeline for when, or if, the perpetual channel of Office 2019 will be updated beyond 1808. Thanks!
