I tried, unsuccessfully, 3 times to update my 2018 Outback maps to the latest rev. I started from scratch each time: downloading the updater software, running it, putting the info on my memory stick, and trying to update the car. Each time it failed ... UNTIL ...

I looked at the format of my memory stick ... it was "ExFAT". SO, I reformatted it to MS-DOS (FAT), and voilà ... THE UPDATE WORKED!

So, if you are having the same map updater issues, try formatting your memory stick to MS-DOS (FAT).

Good to know. NTFS will also work. Mine was default formatted to NTFS. I use the same drive for maps or firmware. ;)
