thank you
Kobo does gradual rollouts of new firmware based on affiliate, possibly geolocation and likely some other factors.

You can manually download the firmware and install it, change the affiliate or be patient. If you want to try a manual download, check geek1011's firmware page at Kobo Firmware Downloads, download the correct version for your Kobo, extract the files from the downloaded .zip and copy them to the .kobo directory.

Yes it is rolling out in waves. Kobo does that each time they release new firmware.

I would regard this as an ideal, necessary patch. While I have no attachment to the native home screen, Overdrive is a family essential. Even the ability to sync items to a Kobo device via the iOS or Android Overdrive (or Libby) app—or via the Overdrive website—would be an acceptable solution if native browsing had to be disabled.

The parental controls just hide the option to connect an Overdrive account to the device. This shouldn't block borrowing books from OD by other methods and having them come to the device. But, you will need to connect the account to OD before turning on the Parental Controls, or use another device logged into the same Kobo and OD accounts.
