Yesterday received first update since January's upgrade to Pie. Sadly it just brings the security level from December 2018 to April 2019, version being 9.0.0.255 i.e not 9.1. Not only do we have Huawei's arrangement with UK network operators delaying updates, we now have Google under orders from the Trump adding another potential maybe permanent delay. If forum administrator agrees, perhaps this topic can remain open as an ongoing record.

[Huawei P20 Pro CLT-L09 9.0.0.255 (C782)]
[Google Play Services 17.4.55 (100408-248795830)] [SIM-free from Carphone Warehouse / O2 branded via GiffGaff]

Not really. That thread is not country specific; note I specified "UK" in the topic header. My experience to date is knowing when updates are being pushed in other countries or regions doesn't help much with regard to the UK owing to the special arrangement between Huawei and UK mobile network operators. While one Swallow does not make a Summer, it's helpful to know when a new update is released by one of the UK networks.

I had no updates from o2 since December. Plugged a Vodafone sim in and 255 arrived immediately.

Interesting! As you were just over three weeks behind my GiffGaff/O2 255 update you _might_ have received 255 via O2 had you waited a little longer (my previous update to 168 and December security patch was in January). That being said, perhaps switching sims puts you to the head of the staggered update queue of the changed network provider.

According to Huawei UK twitter feed :

The wait is finally over ?. We’re excited to launch EMUI 9.1 this July, to provide you with a faster, smoother and smarter experience. Elevate your performance: https://t.co/LBWyX0WO43 https://t.co/UMVRath1mO

End quote.

Are you staying with Vodafone or switching back to O2?

It’s my daughters sim, so can test again another time. To be honest, I have been using an iPhone XS and when I occasionally test the p20 pro again, the indoor photos are washed out and dark compared to the iPhone.

3.1 received OTA in the early hours of this morning.

[Huawei P20 Pro CLT-L09 9.1.0.311 (C782)]
[Google Play Services 18.4.53 (100408-260559365)] [SIM-free from Carphone Warehouse / O2 branded via GiffGaff]

Brief observations :

Just under 4.5GB so long download.

During post-install restart the initial Huawei logo screen displayed for a very long time (several minutes) so don't panic! :)

Noticeable improvement in responsiveness although how long that will last remains to be seen.

Lastly, security patch level is July.

Why do they write about GPU turbo. Version C782 does not receive it

From some very brief research I believe the only way of telling if GPU Turbo is installed is by the improved responsiveness when running a game that can use it. I am not a 'gamer' so have no way of testing that. What makes you believe the update package content information is incorrect?

Settings -> System -> About Phone
Under "Build number" it will say "GPU Turbo".
