Hi it's been a long time since I posted on here. So I have the 6 pro on Verizon. I'm just got the December security update. But my Play services update is stuck on October 1. My wife had the 6 on Verizon and hers is on November and has been for some time now it's 8n the process of updating to the December security update. Is there any way to force the play services update? It's annoying because I have a top line phone only a year old and google is supposed to be the best

Same here ... Play-systemupdate still on October ... I did get a few updates Play-systemupdates recently (and that made some apex files change version) but the date is still October 1. I am not sure what criteria are being used to bump these upgrades. I am on an unsupported country/carrier though (not sure if this anything to do with it). Edit: Probably not as you are on Verizon.

Anyway, previously I would always get the Play-systemupdates at the END of the month. But now it is Dec 6 and I'm not even on the November one.

It will come ... eventually ... I don't think there is a way to 'force' ...

Hello, good day... You can force installing the .apk directly. I always do it from the apkmirror page. I leave you the link so you can try it. I think they have only released the date of November 5th.


I hope it helps you. Cheers...

Well that appears to have worked. But i seem to remember someone saying that all that does is change. The version number. It doesn't actually do anything. I really Don't know how to check that so I really Don't know

That is correct. It is useless to just install that apk manually. It only bumps the date but does not do an actual update of the Google play-systemupdate. Check the logcat (linux):
Code:
> adb logcat | grep Finsky
then activate the upgrade from the settings and you will see if it really updates anything at all.

You wil see (for example):
Code:
12-07 09:36:04.166  6310  6310 I Finsky  : [2] zft.z(4): SysU: No available system update

I got 2 play services updates today. My wife's pixel 6 got 1. But more concerning I noticed that my privacy and security are not combined like my wife's is. I read that that was part of the feature drop. I did get the December security update which should have had the feature drop on it. So what is going on? The only difference is my wife's pixel 6 is from the Google store my 6pro is Verizon branded.

I got 'another' play systemupdate this morning.

What I have noticed is that it updates:
Code:
com.google.mainline.primary.libs                              331058000

to:

com.google.mainline.primary.libs                              331060020
Then, for some reason, this update gets reverted and a few days later it just comes back.

Date is still stuck on October 1.

Check before/after with below linux command (it will show the version of all apex packages):
Code:
adb shell pm list packages --apex-only --show-versioncode | sed -e 's/package://g' | sed -e 's/versionCode://g' | awk '{printf "%-45s %25s\n", $1, $2}' | sort

The privacy and security combined needs an additional flag to be enabled which was not part of the general Google December update. Probably this flag is enabled for Verizon builds. See here:
It must not be enabled on the Verizon build because my wife's phone is from the Google store and it's a 6 mine is Verizon branded pro. But actually I don't think there is a specific Verizon build this month . I don't know but anyway it's really not a big deal if that's all it is. Thank you for showing me that article. I always get the answers I need here.
