Yes, flash stock boot.img as well. In most cases OTA update will not install with modified boot image.Running 188.8.131.52.QFQEUXM, mount count from both system_a and system_b is 0 after I followed Option #1, but I still can't install OTA updates. I managed to install stock boot.img modified with Magisk so I could get rid of TWRP to be safe.
I just tried with the stock boot image.Yes, flash stock boot.img as well. In most cases OTA update will not install with modified boot image.
You might have mixed versions of boot and system images. The best approach is:I just tried with the stock boot image.
The phone now can download the update correctly (with the modified boot it was throwing the error even before downloading it), but still throws the error at the end of the download.
Should I try option #2?
I figured it would be a problem, so I made sure to get everything from the same zip, which is this one:You might have mixed versions of boot and system images. The best approach is:
a) re-flash whole fastboot ROM without data wipe, install OTA update, root the phone again
b) flash whole new fastboot ROM, root the phone again
Switch to slot A and reflash whole ROM, don't root and try to install OTA.I figured it would be a problem, so I made sure to get everything from the same zip, which is this one:

Counters are still at 0, but it's just not working.
That's very strange, I mounted system partition as R/W in the past by mistake, all I had do to fix it was to reflash system image and I could install every OTA update. I never had to do a factory reset to install OTA. But glad that you worked it out.Did that and didn't work, so I decided to try with a factory reset and.....it worked.
Apparently, once you increase the counter, you need a factory reset to get the updates back working.
