The  colleagues from deskmodder.de have pointed out the refresh in this post. I checked my Visual Studio subscription and found the following image files, available for Windows 10 1809 to 20H2 (I did not find the '1609' specified at deskmodder, also a 1607 is not available as Dec-Refresh).

The multi-edition consumer media requires a product key that is specific to the edition in the list that you want to activate. From the desktop, select Start > Settings > Update & Security > Activation. Select Change Product Key and enter your product key. If the key is valid, you will be prompted to confirm the edition change and Windows will run it for you. The ISO files contains the string updated_dec in its file name.

    do note that there are NO Dec 2020 "consumer" editions of the 1809 ISOs (only "business" edition of 1809 Dec 2020 ISOs from MSDN) because the Home/Pro editions of v1809 went out of support in November 2020

    the KB4592440 update can only be applied/installed onto enterprise, education & LTSC 2019 editions of Win10 v1809 and will fail to install on home/pro 1809 editions with "we couldn't complete the updates – undoing changes" message
