I've installed PS v20 and running v20.0.4. CC shows I have a the v19.1.8 update waiting to install too. Should I update the other instance of PS to v19.1.8 or just uninstall it?

That is a system security update. --> If you still use Photoshop CC 2018 (v19) (I still do because of the many bugs, annoyances and crashes of CC 2019 (v20)), you should definitely install the update. --> If you are absolutely happy with all that Photoshop CC 2019 gives you, than go ahead and just deinstall v19.

Howdy Scott,

What Olaf said.  As a general rule, we no longer remove the older versions automatically but if you're going to keep using it, you should take the updates.

Hope that helps,
David
