Looks like July is the newest build. Message me on XDA (same username) and I can point you in the right direction. Pretty sure my post would be against this communities guidelines so I don't want to post or message here.

It might and so might SmartSwitch.  I'd try Smart Switch first. 

Smart Switch for Windows https://www.samsung.com/global/download/smartswitchwin

Smart Switch for Mac  https://www.samsung.com/global/download/smartswitchmac/

Step 1. Connect your device to your computer using the USB cable provided with your device, and then open Smart Switch on your computer.

Step 2. If a software update is available, Smart Switch might automatically prompt you to update the software or will display an option to update

Step 3. Click Update and use the on-screen prompts to download the necessary files

Step 4. Click OK to proceed. Your device may turn off and on a few times during the update process. When the update is complete, the device returns to the Home screen.

Note: Don't disconnect the USB cable or use your device

It was supposed to get the update in September,  but nothing happened. And the tablet doesn't have any carrier because it's wifi only. Someone already got the update in any country?,  I'm in USA.

I have the Tab A T-290 2019 Kids Edition, and I suspect I am being left out of the major update due to the age of the device.

The updates for the tablets do not appear to come as often as the phones. At best they seem to be every other month.
