Lenovo Tab4 8 not receiving push notifications

I just purchased this tablet and I am not receiving notifications from apps I have downloaded. I checked the notification settings and everything seems fine, is there anything else I should check or any way to address this?

Has it upgraded from Android 7 (Nougat) to Oreo (8.1) yet?  There was also a second large update to Oreo in January.  You can check Android Settings / System to see and possibly trigger it.  Lenovo fixed some network recognition issues on this tablet bundled with the Android Oreo version upgrade.

I checked about system status and it says I'm up to date with 7.1.1. Forgive my ignorance, but is there another way to upgrade?

I don't know any way to force it, it often takes some days after activation.  There might be some interim updates to Nougat before the big one.  I'd suggest keeping active wifi for some days to give it a chance to connect with the Mother Ship.  There are some Lenovo preinstalled service / registration apps but long gone on my tablet, and don't think they affect system updating.
