I did not receive the notification, but I was able to pull it by manually checking for updates (T-Mobile)
Probably won't install it until the weekend though since i need my phone to be bug free for the next few days.

October security update popped up today.
For me yesterday and my wife last week on a Samsung. Last one was Oreo 8.1 September patch. Either they've caught up to speed or we will know of a really important vulvnerability soon that was mandatory to patch.

This was a weird update for me. The phone tried to apply the update once and failed halfway through it. When the phone rebooted, it said the update enountered a problem and no changes were made to the phone. I then immediately received notification of another update. When I applied it the update got to about the 90% mark and then also failed. The phone rebooted, again said it encountered a problem and no changes were made, but when I manually checked the for updates about 15 mins later, it reported that my phone was up-to-date and that I was on the February 2019 update.
Hmmm...but am I? Haha.

I probably would have went for a clear cache partition after the first one failed...
As far as your patch goes you will know it is working when your WiFi starts cutting out, your battery starts draining really fast and your phone won't charge unless turned off. Next thing you know you will feel the sudden urge to start recording all of your phone calls only to find out that the feature is not supported... /S
Maybe this helps?

Thanks, my info is identical to that, so I guess maybe it did "take" afterall. I didn't even think to wipe the cache -- I forgot you could do that with the stock recovery. I'm still getting used to be unrooted stock again.
Yep, after letting everyone else be the guinea pigs, I finally flashed my Moto G5S Plus back to stock Nougat, it immediately updated Nougat a couple of times, then the Oreo update, and then like 4 or 5 updates to Oreo (so far). All working great! Even Google Camera (with HDR+) still works great, so Moto must have enabled the Camera2 API in their stock Oreo ROM.
