How many of you have settings/about/status stating that your serial number is unkown?

I am trying to figure out if this is a flaw or if its no big deal. Also want to know if this is what is causing me from not getting any ota update yet.

Before reading the second part of your post I was thinking that. I too have no serial number listed and am not getting OTA updates.

Add one more to the list. I've done multiple factory resets to no avail.
