Default SM-G3815 (Galaxy Express 2) upgrade

Hi all

I am running Belgium ROM (Belgacom/Proximus) and my green square 1x1 'software update' widget shows a red circle with N inside.
I guess this might mean there is a new ROM. But, on SamMobile, I do not see one for Belgium.
Also, software update (correctly) complains my device is modified.

Has someone else lately done an OTA update in Belgium? If yes: what does calling *#1234# show?

mine shows:
AP: G3815XXUAMJ1
CP: G3815XXUAMJ1
CSC: G3815VFGAMJ1

Thanks

Update: there was an upgrade on SamMobile specific to my country/provider G3815XXUBMK5_G3815VFGBMK5_PRO.zip, so Samsung does provide upgrades. Agreed it is not the latest android, but never say no: SM-G3815 stock may perhaps one day go beyond 4.2.2

I installed the upgrade (flashing with heimdall) but not without arranging for keeping root and busybox (and Link2SD as -all- my apps are linked).

and : green square 1x1 'software update' widget no longer shows a red circle with N inside.
