The Android upgrade cannot install on encrypted devices with secure start-up enabled.
Disable secure start-up first:
- Go to the security settings.
- Re-enter your current screen lock, but leave secure start-up disabled. You can re-enable it after you are done installing the update.
We only list the last updates of each version, as they have the most recent security patches and fixes for that version.
