TB-8504F Android system update download fails repeatedly

My TB-8504F has been telling me (off and on) for several weeks that system update ..._181016_ROW (Android 8.1) update is available. But, every time I click "Download and install" it immediately tells me, "Download failed, please try again."

 

Any guidance appreciated. Thanks, in advance.

Me too! Extremely annoying... What part in the world are you guys getting this problem ... I'm in Australia....

Or could it be something else... Like something that was installed ???

Re: TB-8504F Android system update download fails repeatedly

I had the same problem (I'm in Australia) trying to do the S000061 to S001011 update.

Turns out this update is huge (1.6Gb) and if you don't have enough free space on the internal storage you see the Failed message, no indication that it is a space issue and the download never starts (this is pretty poor software engineering).

Freeing space allowed the download to start and then the update ran without issue (although it did take 25mins).
