I just realised there is no more item to check for new SFOS Update (the one where the lakes/rivers are shown in background) in my settings app. Was this removed and can be found somewhere else or did something go wrong when updating to I also realized I had to re-enable developer mode for SSH-access again.

I searched TJC for missing update app but didn't find anything so it seems it's not a common problem which affects a lot of people.

Edit: I'm using Jolla 1

@mdosch, you have managed to somehow lose it from your device.... maybe some tweak/patch done wrong?

Probably version --verify (in terminal) will tell you missing or obsolete OS components.

I had a similar issue but you've already been provided an answer, I see!

Seems that something messed up your settings (e.g. a patch?!).

You can either try to

  • install possibly missing packages with the command version --dup


  • reinstall the settings with pkcon install jolla-settings-sailfishos.

To execute this commands in the Terminal app you need to activate developer mode in settings. :)

Thank you, version --dup fixed it for me.

But I wonder what caused the loss of jolla-settings-sailfishos as I'm not using patches. Maybe some conflict due to openrepos as I think I forgot to deactivate before doing the last update.
