Hello, I have installed and the device says there is 1.1.6 available, but when i click the update, it takes me to settings and nothing more. Can anybody help?

Recently I installed Czech localization via pkcon, could it be the problem? Pkcon also updated all the apps.

On settings, to which screen it takes you? Is there a pull-down menu with download option?

To the main settings screen, no pull-down menu.

Can you access the update screen from there? Settings > System > Sailfish OS update

No, I can not.

It seems like the app that takes care of updating is missing.

After comments, seems like you need a workaround.

Enable developer mode, create a password to yourself and start Terminal app (visible after enabling in your laucher screen). There:

version --dup

If you manage to update with these commands, but still can't access the update screen even after that, please send a new bug report (or edit this question into one, tagging it with bug). More at:
