If the message in the Windows Update settings page reads: “The Windows 10 May 2020 Update is on the way. We’re offering this update to compatible devices, but your device isn’t quite ready for it. Once your device is ready, you’ll see the update available on this page. There’s nothing you need to do at this time,” then your device is not compatible.

If you see a Download and install button, then your computer is fully compatible with Windows 10 version 2004, which case, you can use the Windows Update, Media Creation Tool, Update Assistant, or even an ISO file to upgrade to the new version.

In the case that you don’t any message, the best action is to wait until you see the download option automatically.
