Updating Quickbooks to latest version

I have QuickBooks Premier Accountant Edition 2020.


On the update website Release notes for QuickBooks Desktop 2020 ( it says there are versions R11, and R14, and i am on R8, however whenever i try to update from Quickbooks, nothing happens.


Now obviously with the retirement of internet explorer, i can't access the help site, so need the R14 version, so i tried to manually download the version, but again only version R8 downloads.


Can QuickBooks please fix this.

R8 in your download page, not R11 or R14


Someone skipped (or neglected) to update the source.

Is there any date when we'll be able to download the latest update.


The fact that R11 was released in February 2021, and we can't even download that update is not good.


Now we need R12, but can't get anything other than R8, which was released in September 2020, nearly 2 years ago.


This urgently needs sorting.

 Hello Jack1289,  so the most recent version for the UK is R8, I can see that it does state R14 like you say however that is for the US version the UK is only on R8.  so you will be fine using R8, there will be nothing stopping you from working on that version.
