When I login to minecraft, I'm prompted with a message saying I can download the new version for free, but when I look; it says I need to pay 20$. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this just a glitch?

You're talking about the W10 Edition right? In the Microsoft Store

It's only free if you bought the disc version last time

There's also another version of Minecraft on XB1 which lets you play with W10, Android, Nintendo Switch and I think iOS users. But you need to be in the insider program and have the digital XB1 version of MC.

I think the W10 Version was free if you played the W10 mc beta.

Motto: Save more then you spend but treat yourself cause more coming
"Minecraft owners who have played for five or more hours or have purchased a DLC pack will receive the new version of Minecraft for free. If you're a disc owner, you have until January 30th, 2018 to meet the hour requirement or purchase a DLC pack and receive the new version free. If you own the Xbox One version digitally, there is no date cutoff that you have to meet. Mojang says the five-hour minimum is "to help us separate real accounts from fake ones."
