If the update hasn’t reached you over the air, you can use Huawei’s HiCare app to request an update. Note that it seems the rollout started in China so other regions may need to wait a while.

How did you get the update to EMUI 8. My MATE 9 got an update today, but only patches to EMUI 5.0.1. Sucks.
