As stated above there was an update to Google Play Services that removed the update button (from stock). He confirmed by uninstalling updates to play services and had his system update button back. I couldn't personally tell you what version does this, but if you read the play services thread in themes in apps, it's there.

Okay so now, I did a factory reset, it works. BUT, I can't sign into Google. Each time I try I get the "There was a problem communicating with Google servers" message. I tried with 2-step AND without 2-step. Doesn't work. So my phone is pretty much unusable now without a Google account. Anyone have any ideas about this?

EDIT: Also, about the Play Services, I did mess with it, but that was a couple of months ago. I tried to do something stupid, and lost the Play Services completely, so I had to manually install the APK for it. The System Update thing went missing only a few days ago.

Well I'm on 100% stock and locked boot loader but I was stumped to see the same issue on my nexus last week. Also cleared caches and settings but eventually had to do a factory reset which cured the issue.

Did you mess with the google play services app? You don't have to be rooted to install apks and you could have reverted play services to original settings.
