I had SFOS installed on a "true" JollaC .
Then SFOS was made available for all but System Updates was displaying "up to date".

I waited one day, thinking of a progressive deployment - no change.

Went ssu re; version --dup; reboot all went fine, JollaC updated to

Now System Updates suggests me to update to , which I won't do ;-)

I have tried the solution described here - no change.

Any idea?

Same here. No developer mode but I have used recovery mode to modify /usr/lib/mozembedlite/chrome/embedlite/content/ (removed search engines) and /rootfs/etc/mce (volumedown=key_power).

Edit: Intex Aqua Fish converted to Jolla C found the update without problems. After installation it notifies about older version.

Thanks a lot, no downloading! Maybe off topic, this might be of some interest: Checking updates on mobile broadband connectiong did not find the update a while ago. Then I started to try on a public WLAN using an old saved network, which happened not to be operational and only gave restricted connection, ie. LAN. In Settings > WLAN > "Auto-retrieve IP address" I was not able to modify the DNS settings. The wrong, old DNS settings persisted, until I did the following: 1) turn the WLAN on, 2) delete the DNS settings and leave this window open, 3) go to Events screen and use Quick Action called Connect to the internet, 4) choose the same WLAN ssid that was left open in the step 2, and jio-jippye-jay you are connected and the network IP settings just had gotten automatically correct. Right away, I got an announcement about available update.

So, this finding might have some value as a workaround for editing saved network, if it has nothing to do with system updates.

Hello, could you try again please? Briefly speaking, there is a known bug about version dup and should be working now. Thanks for reporting.

Now works just fine, thanks!

I confirm it works, I have simply "Checked for updates" and now it displays "up to date", which is ok. So it seems it was something fixed in the jolla repositories, not locally on the phone.

Now System Updates suggests me to update to, i.e. to downgrade.

There is a mismatch beween Store client and Store backend. The following should resolve it:

devel-su           ### your SSH password is needed here
rm -rf /home/nemo/.cache/store-client/os-info

Thanks! It worked with simply "Check for updates". Now it displays "up to date", which is ok. For my phone I didn't have to remove the "os-info" again ( did it once, just pkilled store-clien w/o reboot, rebooted few times since - no effect). May be necessary in other cases, though - you know better. For my case it seems there was something fixed in the meanwhile in the jolla repositories, not locally on the phone.
