Hi Abhilashindia

 

I would suggest using Rescue and Smart Assistant to flash the software. Here's the link. Please go here for the instructions. Kindly backup important files/apps first to make sure you won't lose your important data. I hope that helps. Thanks.

Got the same issue, but with K8 Plus. I am downloading an oreo ROM from xda right now.

I think, that this all was done by lenovo on purpose. I was on latest oreo and my phone starts acting up, mobile data doesn't work properly, camera & fingerprint sensor don't work, although on restarting it fixes it, but restarting again will break it again for some reason.

None of this cr*p happened on the older version, somehow the update introduced new bugs "accidently". So I decided to flash nougat stock firmware and voila, I get no updates!?

This is textbook example of planned obsolescence. These kind of things makes people, never buy your product again, acting all sneaky, over-smart, you really think I can't add two and two together and realise whatsup?

Update:The updates are available, well at least on my phone now. It would be baffling to removed - preferred language that they did it after my comment, as if it somehow scared them. Giving the benefit of doubt to lenovo, I concur that it might be an honest mistake on lenovo's part. But still, I'll be cautious and I am going to update my device to the latest oreo version ie. January 2019 security update.
