I got my new Tesla last Friday and when it was delivered it had 24.8. On Monday I went to the airport and while on the way got a notification on my phone via the Tesla app that a new software update was available which was exciting. Fast forward to yesterday and when I finally got a chance to get in the car to try and install the update I see no update available. Did anyone else have this happen? Any idea why it seems to have disappeared?

If it was 26.1, it seems like they’ve pulled that update and aren’t pushing it anymore.

I think this is exactly what happened with 26.1 stalling and getting pulled. 26.3 just dropped today though!

When I got the notification for 26.1 I needed to leave for an appointment so I schedule the update to install at 11pm. I got home at 4 and we had nothing else planned so I decided to try to install it. I found the install interface by clicking a little clock in the upper right by the time.

There will be small alarm clock on top corner. That's the update notification.

I was on vacation last week, I got an alert on my phone that I had a software update available. I was hoping it was V9. Well once we got home there is no update on the screen in the car. How can I force the car to check for an update?

If Tesla decided to stop the rollout of the version of software that your car had downloaded, then there's nothing you can do.

If you still have an update pending, but the popup window has disappeared, then there will be a yellow "clock" notification symbol along the top. Just tap that to bring the update window back up.

You cannot.

Yea the yellow clock is not present so I guess whatever update it was got pulled back. I'll just keep waiting for the V9 update.
