Yes, two different people (US998 and H930) had problems with bootloader unlock on July security patch. They both flashed earlier KDZ and were able to unlock the bootloader. See the WTF thread. One posted a screenshot of the error message.
You mean besides the security patch that blocks the bootloader unlock exploit?
Now on Oreo, LG has to supply updates at least every 90 days for three years for this phone. Even if it's just security updates.
You have European H930 or North America US998? Sorry, I glossed over that part. This 20D KDZ is for US998.Well I agree with you but I am trying to sell it and the average phone user will not understand what is TWRP or what to do when factory resetting it and the TwrP screen pops up .

Confirmed working on H930 with 20D as instructed by Chazzzzzzzzzzzzz. Thankssss.
If you ever want to unlock the bootloader, don't use anything newer than 20B. See warning at top of post #1.
Lg's generic mobile device drivers should be enough.I have an LG LS998 . I can no longer transfer it to any carriers because TMobile is taking down the sprint towers. This guide is awesome but after 2 years some of the links to files are no longer working. Is there a more recent guide. I would like to upgrade to the US998. Any help would be great. LG seems to have taken the drivers down?
Added US99820b_03_0524 KDZ (2.76Gb)
Right now with this full KDZ, if you are already bootloader unlocked and rooted, to update you need to flash via dev patched LGUP with DL Partition method -- but leave off "recovery" partition to keep TWRP custom recovery. Then in TWRP, reflash Magisk, the "no encryption" file and the "don't check root" file.
If you don't do that, and flash the full KDZ, you will also have to reinstall TWRP.
If we do get a TWRP flashable zip, I'll post the link here in this thread. Then you can just flash THAT in TWRP like a ROM... Until then you can NOT flash this with TWRP. Do NOT post messages that you cannot flash in TWRP. I'm telling you that already.
If you are not bootloader unlocked and rooted, then just flash via LGUP with "upgrade".
@westwood24, can please make us a flashable zip of this KDZ please? You can make your own thread like you did with the H930 update and I'll link to it. Thank you!
