Happened to me too, but after waitin looooong time (about 2 hours) the update finally finished and everything is ok.

Maybe I was too hasty but I also pulled the battery somewhere between 1-2hrs. I got rid of the update notification with this (only I renamed the os-info to os-info.bak and there was no re-install, but anyway):

  • Delete the file/home/nemo/.cache/store-client/os-info
  • Stop the store-client process (for e.g. pkill store-client)
  • Reopen Settings app, check for updates again and attempt to install the OS update again

Isn't it the the file system optimizations mentioned in release notes?

"When updating from 1.1.6 your device might go through lengthy file system optimizations before installing the update."

@AliNa at least on my device, the optimization was a separate process, before backup, download and installation.

what is your backup size? noticed about 5minutes or so arround 95-99% i had about 6GB free because i deleted all backups (3GB) and made new backup without galery.

second jolla was maybe little slower and it has with about 700mb in backup files

both are simillar, without alien, no 3d party apps, only LEDs are adjusted....

So @tmi told the right:

Delete the file /home/nemo/.cache/store-client/os-info
Stop the store-client process (for e.g. pkill store-client)
Reopen Settings app, check for updates again.

This solved the "Update available" - Problem

it's not a bug, just be patient, for me it took more than 2 hours, but everything went fine.

So, 2h would be fine, but without feedback and a statusbar that is on 99% and not moving - it is indeed a bug.

If the final update can take that time, users should be warned. The update on my jolla took about an hour. After 15 minutes with the statusbasr almost at the end I went to this place and saw this thread and left the jolla. About an hour later I checked the jolla and it was back alive.
