The download for August 2020 CU is available through the following link:

Important: It is required to install both fixes (language dependent and independent) to fully patch a SharePoint server. This applies also to servers which do not have language packs installed. The reason is that each SharePoint installation includes a language dependent component together with a language independent component. If additional language packs are added later (only) the language dependent fix has to be applied again.

It is irrelevant which language you pick on the drop down in download center. Even the language dependent fixes are all in the same package for all languages.

After installing the fixes you need to run the SharePoint 2019 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm. If you prefer to run the command line version psconfig.exe ensure to have a look here for the correct options.

Please ensure to have a look at the SharePoint Patching Best Practices before applying new fixes.

Language independent fix: 16.0.10364.20001

    1. Hey, just to update you.
      I ran the config wizard again and all seems ok now.
      If anyone experiencing similar issue, steps I took:

      Installed Language independent update.
      Rebooted server
      Installed Language dependent updated (no restart required).
      Ran config wizard – completed successfully.
      Launched a site and no edit button or new button appeared.
      Re-ran the config wizard – completed successfully.
      Launched a site and all seemed fine.
