As of Feb 7th, 2020 still no play store security update ...any one else seeing this?
If you are talking about the Google play system update, it was mentioned on the security bulletin page that this month there is none... Weirdly i just checked now and got one, but i guess its just a number bump.
Btw you can check for updates if you just press on it in the settings page (see the attached pic)

About the playstore version, yes its a staged rollout, don't worry if you don't have the latest version. Also the playstore (app) version has nothing to do with the "google play system update" those are 2 different things.

Yes, both are staged rollouts. However, OTA updates can be "forced" by manually pressing the "Check for update" button, which sadly doesn't work for Google Play system update.

I really don't think pressing "Check for update" forces anything. Updating to the February security patch yesterday via the ADB method. Tried your way before, nada.

    These things are usually rolled out progressively, like OTAs are. The latest (18.6.43) was released two days ago.

    I have been updating like this since I got the Pixel 3a and it always worked on the first day when the update was released.

    The button used to be "placebo" effect before, but then they fixed it with a certain version of the Google Play Services about a year ago.
