MS Office 2016 or 2019, which will install with least "issues" or "bugs"?

I am about to buy several MS Office Home and Business 2019 licenses from Dell and wanted to know if there are "issues" with it, before I do.  Should I get Office 2016 instead?  We are installing these, as I don't want to go cloud with our email.  Does 2019 have issues or bugs?  I can go with 2016 if that is the more reliable solution. We are using 2007 now.  Our server and Exchange are being upgraded next week to Exchange 2016, so I have to get the new Office software, as Office 2007 won't run on Exchange 2016.

Please don't distract from the purpose of this question with commentary about the cloud, especially 365.  That is not a good solution for us, for multiple reasons. Please help me with the decision of whether to install Office 2016 or 2019.

I have Office 2016 Subscription and it works fine and has worked fine from the beginning.

Thank you and good luck. You should be very happy with Office 2019. I think my subscription will soon be 2019 of the subscription equivalent.

Happy New Year to you.
