Default [Q] firmware upgrade

My tab 2 wont upgrade to the latest firmware (which fixes the powering off issue). I have tried both ota and kies. Both will seemingly download the firmware but wont install. Ota gives me a cant upgrade error and kies downloads, decrypts, decompresses and then nothing. Samsung has no clue how to get upgrade installed. How do I fix this problem?

Default Firmware Update

I have been having the same issue and can tell you that even with a factory reset that it doesn't help either. At this time I don't want to root mine. Any ideas without root?

Guys, flashing stock ROM using Odin does NOT root the device, and does NOT require root to do it.
Optimus G F180S, tweaked E975 Stock 4.1.2
Xperia X10 Mini, rooted stock 2.1
MeMO Pad HD 7 ME173X, rooted stock 4.2.2

To whom it may concern: STOP nagging about pressing the freakin' Thanks button!!! It is rude, stupid, and annoys the hell out of people. I am not an idiot who needs a huge in-my-face reminder to press it, and I will press it when I feel thankful, not because you asked for it!

flashing stock rom and rooting a device are two different things

if you can flash another country's rom it won't be any problem
also if you choose top 10 countries in country column you can find the latest 4.2.2 for your tab 2 10.1
