That's excactly what is the worst thing in this matter. That "Android One" story they told us...
The label "Android One" is supposed to be a guarantee of fast and reliable updates of the Android system.
If things are still running that slow as they do since years, this would mean the whole "Android One" label is completly worthless and nothing more then a marketing lie.
I am truly disappointed.

Be patient, android 10 isn't even released a whole month and you are already disappointed?
If you wanted FAST updates, you needed to buy the Pixel phone.
Android One never promised FAST updates, they promised 3 years worth of timely security updates and 2 years of software updates.
The security updates arrive within the month after they are released, you can't expect that from a whole new OS version.
The developers won't give out any release dates, so stop complaining about this.
Android One was developed to be able to deliver updates easier than vendor customised phones.
It took Motorola 6 months to update their previous flagship to android pie (10 months for the US versions!)
The previous Moto One phones received their pie updates after 41 (Moto One Power) and 53 (Moto One) days !
Examples for other vendors:
Samsungs flagship S8 took 210 days to receive the first major update, the S9 took 178 days.
LG's flagship took over a year to update!
The OnePlus OxygenOs 9 came after 48 days.
So Motorola/Lenovo are not all that bad compared to the rest...

Thanks for the info. I will try my VPN with different countries. Worked for the August update. Says it fixes connectivity issues and I have a lot of them
I didn't know the September patch has not been released in all of Europe. I just checked and it's indeed not mention on the German support page, but it is on the "rest of Europe" one: https://motorola-global-en-roe.custhelp.com/app/answers/prod_answer_detail/a_id/143788/p/30,10766,10...
It was released simultaneously in Brazil and I've already received it. So the good news is it's probably going to be rolled out to Germany very shortly. The bad news is that no major bugs were fixed. I've been using it for three days now and there is no noticeable change.

As consumers we should put pressure on the company, if it feels comfortable it will update in 10 months, if it feels that it is a pressure, a consumer need will be in 1 week.
See how Motorolla fits each market (China, India, USA, Europe, Brazil) each country has some different characteristics as consumers are different (different requirements).
I believe that pushing Lenovo to upgrade its Motorolla One phones is critical.
