    Hi All,

    You can force the latest ota by doing the following.

    1. Go to settings
    2. Press apps And scroll to all apps.
    3. Find "Google Services Framework" (it's just over half way down for me).
    4. Select "Google Services Framework" stop it and clear the data.
    5. Back to settings, about phone' system updates. Press update.

    This took me about 10 attempts to work.
    Most people get it after about the 3rd or 5th go.

    Not found a single bug doing this. Everything works perfectly. I did clear the phones cache just as a precaution.

    Sideloading the correct update is identical to doing it OTA, nothing negative about it.

    (for future reference, if you dont like waiting).

    Please note this method is NOT advised. If you want to force the OTA just sideload it as mentioned previously.

    ADB sideload is an official update method supported by google. It will not void your warranty in any way
