I did try this last time and I think my active partition switched and was stuck in bootloop. Don't want that to happen again, is there anything else that we have to do?
You could try booting into AEX recovery and install the update via sideload. Though you'll need a computer for this. Or temporarily boot Nebrassy's TWRP build and install the OTA there.
I tried this, the process was finished with no errors, but I am still on an older build. its strange!
Maybe check the date in the build number in the About Phone section to see which day it was built to make sure it's an older build?
