Hi,
What is the best idea to get a copy of High Sierra now? I’m on Mojave and App store does not provide any option to re-download 10.13. any more.

I just tested it and here's what I see, running Mojave 10.14.4:

My 2018 MBP keeps telling ‘not found’ when opening the link within the AppStore.

I just tried the link above from my 2017 iMac running 10.14.4 Mojave and it works. What version of macOS did your 2018 MacBook Pro come installed with?

Originally the 2018 MBPs shipped with 10.13.6.
The final version of 10.13.6 was released 9 July 2018. The 2018 MBP was released in July 2018. Mojave 10.14.was released 24 Sep. 2018.

I believe that the 2018 MBP had a special version of 10.13.6 that was not the normal version available from the App Store. I seem to remember, there were threads of people trying to do clean installs on their new 2018 MBP's but got themselves in trouble because they erased their internal drives and they could not download/install a version of 10.13.6 that would work on the 2018 MBP. I believe the general build number from the App Store was 17G65, I think the 10.13.6 on the 2018 MBP build number was 17G2112.
