Moto G4 Plus: System update paused "Turn off data saver to start download"

2018-01-29, 22:30 PM

Hi there, while trying to download and install the Android 7.00 December 2017 System Update, I get the screen:  "System update paused - Turn off data saver to start downlaoad".  If I click "ok", this screen as well as the underlying screen "New system software available" dissappear and nothing happens.  Data saver has been turn on and off as well as phone a couple of times: same result.  I remember that, when I got the first request for system update, I cklicked "No, maybe later" as my battery was empty at that time. 

 

Screenshot is attached. 

 

Can anyone help?

I also experienced the same issue and found the solution. Please follow below steps..

Settings

Data usage

Data saver

Unrestricted data access

Click top right edge 3 dots : and select show system

Find Device management on the list and tick ON

 

Automatically the update popup came and it installed easily.

Hi motorolaG4p,

 

Sorry to know that you're encountering an error while downloading the software, we're here to help. May we verify the steps on how did you turn off the data? It's best if you try downloading it using WiFi instead.

Hi Daisy,

 

I use already WiFi. To turn off the data saver, I go to Settings/Data Usage/Data Saver and toggle it off. Correct?

 

Cheers,

Günther

It seems correct. Did you try to reboot the phone then try again?

Try the following steps including Factory reset with no restore. Make sure to back up your data.

@scks: Many thanks and congrats.
Solved the issue for me and made my day!
Fyi: My system, in-between, had started to toggle between the requests to 1. (re-)establish WIFI connection and 2. turn off data saver, while both were already done.
@Daisy: Did not follow your proposal, as I did not want to save my data on the internet, before trying other solutions.
Cheers to all ..
