If you have MT4 installed so you can connect with MetaQuotes-Demo server (open demo account with MetaQuotes), and wait for updates.
If the update is not started so - close MT4 and open it once again to force updates.

I think - it is the better to do it during the weekend.

I have Windows 10 64-Bit.  It may have been an update that took out the function I was used to having.  Not sure how it did it but will keep looking for a workaround or a fix. 
Thank you for your input Sergey.

I contacted my broker MyFXChoice and they were able to get me going by having me choose another data center.  Down in the lower right corner where it shows the upload/download KB.  We did this and also reloaded the MT4.  That got the features that were gone to reappear.

Build 1280 glitch from July 24, 2020 MT4?

Renat Fatkhullin , 2020.09.02 00:32

Go to MetaTrader 5, please.

Our MetaTrader 4 demo server is practically out of service and will be shut down soon.

But I think that the brokers will continue to support MT4.

I have a running EA. iRSI code doesn't work on demo/real trading  EA after 1280 update. It works perfectly on 1260. It doesn't show any error or warning when I compile. RSI in EA works perfect only in backtesting of 1280. What to do?
