All updates have notes that you can view before downloading. You could also google the update number and see what it tells you. I'll look more into it for you and if I can find anything I'll reply again. Cheers

Software updates don't just start by themselves. You have to agree to a couple things before installing. You or someone else would've had to hit install or install overnight for it to go.

The update said it was added things to improve the screen/LCD. The update took only about 20 minutes for me. If it is stuck at 40% you may need to restart your device and see if that fixes things.

You can always try contacting LG directly or google if there's a change log anywhere but that's unlikely.

So could it be a hack scam?

They properly haven't updated it, or the list omitted the G5. The information on the list was properly updated "after the fact", not "incoming".

@Jonathan: it seemed to be a legit update. Another customer also asked about it today.

Anything new or is this just another security / bug fix update? Mine is at 83%, it's taking hours just to download it...

I think It was a security update. Google has released lots of security related to KRACK and other things.

Likely a security update. Koodo has released a bunch in the past couple of weeks. https://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/upcoming-software-updates

I don't see anything new or different now that it's finished, so I assume it to be a security update... still android version 7.0.

You can go into your settings, about phone, software info, and see what security patch your on. This should give a good idea wether it was one or not.
