Can you post your phones details: model, firmware etc.
You're in the UK too?
There are ways of updating manually but they wipe the phone.Your situation isn't as bad as I thought. At least your phones working and usable. Ive heard plenty of ebay tales with vendors selling on phones without fully disclosing all the details, but you seem to be saying you knew the details before purchase?
Does it mean that you're now stuck at whatever 10 version you're on with no possibility of updating?
Yes the same as a factory reset.@carbonize
So, not like an OTA? Manually updating wipes everything, same as a factory reset, yes?

Dodgy seller huh. Yeah I get now that you can update but its a bloody hassle having to reinstall your entire setup each time. And yeah the chance of bricking it is daunting too.
Check, check, and check again before updating I guess.
Good luck in the future, I hope you do not end up with a pretty door stop
