I've had my moto G for two days now, and have been trying to update to 4.4. Whenever I go to system updates, it says that I am up to date, although I am on 4.3. Does anyone else have this problem? I have tried factory reset and still doesn't work. Any advice? Thanks.

Google usually staggeres these releases in case there is a bug so they don't have a bunch of devices out there with a huge bug.

Try to avoid constantly checking for updates as that may actually hurt your chances of getting the update sooner.

I've always done this and usually get updates before anyone. As far as what it's supposedly messing up just after you update then delete your Google account & re-enter it and away you go like nothing was ever affected ;-)
They just don't want everyone doing this so if there is issues there's less pp affected by it, so it is best to wait if you don't want to take chances.

Apparently there is a problem with the update as it was messing up people's SIM cards, so Motorola suspended it until a fix can be found. That's what my source at Motorola told me. And the messing up the SIM is true as there are a few threads here about that issue.

I was informed after this post that Chris is correct, there was an issue noticed so the update was halted while they figure it out. Be patient or root and adb

Considering the possible issues, I think that patience in this case is wise.

Heard from my friend at Motorola. They found the bug and theyare working on fixing the software. He expects it will take a couple of weeks before it will be re-released. Patience indeed, just a little. :-)

Chris does that mean Motorola is looking to solve the card issues?

The original update being pushed out did not work with older, version 1, sim cards which is why replacing the sim fixed the problem. (All sim cards sold by koodo now are version 3)

@ Moto G From what I understand once the new/updated software is released you won't even have to replace your SIM even if it's a V1. We shall see.

Update was just pushed out today to the Moto G that fixes all the issues ppl have reported in this forum, do head into the settings and check for the update if you haven't been notified yet.

No one can tell you. Given they have released it, it can be anytime.
