Odd, to say the least. My bad. Didn't realize "92" indicated India and "93" indicated US.

Welp. I totally forgot about enabling permissions for the Motorola Update Services. OP fixed.

And yes, en.US doesn't mean it's retus. Which is confusing...

No, just a OTA for India and Brazil.

In addition to Wolfcity's reply, you may have to unlock your bootloader again, if the NPNS25.137-92-14 stock ROM does not flash. If so, then back up as much of your data as possible. A backup should have been made regardless before attempting.

Besides losing your data and having an unlocked bootloader (so bootloader unlocked warning and no safetynet), I don't see any problems since the two builds may be similar. However, I can't be sure, given cross fishing could be risky. I suggest backing up as much as you can before committing. For best stability, you'd likely want to start fresh, full erase, but up to you.

Alternatively, wait for the EU NPNS25.137-93-14 Oreo OTA to be leaked on XDA or other sources. If the Oreo update leads you to the same build as the Indian and Brazil builds (OPS28.85-13) then you could use the EU Oreo OTA to update. I've no idea if VoLTE or other India specific services would work with this approach.
