The changes made in the interface in this OS update is quite different from the one that was sent to the HTC One smartphones in the US and Taiwan. Apart from the European devices, it is the Asian devices too which would get the update with the Android version 4.2 and Sense 5.0 going to Android 4.3 and Sense 5.5.
It is an Over-the-air update which comes directly to the device when it is connected to the Internet, and if it hasn’t already, go to the About section in Settings where there is an option to check for the software update manually.
