UNSOLVED Updates Failing to Install - Sony Xperia 10
In the Updates portion of System Settings, I am given the option to update Ubuntu Touch to version 138.
I click on install, it asks me to restart & install, which I click, the phone restarts and then when I go back into System Settings it's still asking me to install update 138.
I don't get shown any errors, just the option to install again.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
Thanks in advance

Is ubports installer works with your phone?
If yes, maybe you can try reinstalling with ubports, without wipping any data option enabled.
@keneda Unfortunately, it isn't on the Ubports installer. I installed it manually through fastboot.

@adlinux If this is the gsi there is no OTA update avilable. Have you had a look in here https://forums.ubports.com/topic/5452/sony-xperia-10-kirin
@lakotaubp The updates part of System settings isn't saying anything about OTA releases, just a version number. Which has now changed to version 142, but is still having the same behaviour as before.
Also, what do you mean by gsi?
Please forgive me if I am missing something obvious here, I've had no prior experience with Ubuntu Touch before installing it 2 days ago.
How would I go about working out which version I am currently running. I have an OS build number date of 2021-02-06.

@adlinux gsi = generic system image If I remember correctly that means no OTA (over the air) updates you need to update things yourself in a similar fashion to the orginal install. As you have posted in the linked thread I gave you it's probably best to wait for an answer there. These newer ports can have their own quirks and someone with that device will have the best answer.
@lakotaubp OOOHH right that makes a lot more sense now xD
I hadn't actually looked up what OTA meant (that was my first mistake) and assumed that it was similar to LTS or ESR in desktop Linux terms.
So I just need to flash the new versions to my phone through my computer? That's fine by me!
Thank you for the help
So, now having done a bit more research, the versions seems to be from the dev channel. They were downloading but weren't installing.
I think I might know the problem to this issue (however I am currently unable to test it, I'll say why in the paragraph underneath this one). Normally the UBports recovery gets installed on the phone when you're using a Halium 7 device. I had to flash this phone manually and it is using Halium 9. I don't think it ever installed the UBports recovery onto the phone. When I flashed Ubuntu Touch to the phone before I had TWRP temporally on the phone (in order to format user data, and to check that the phone was set to Slot A), but I never had a custom recovery flashed to the phone permanently.
After a bit of time spent experimenting with Sailfish OS I decided to reinstall Ubuntu Touch, and this time I have properly flashed TWRP to the phone so that it has a custom recovery that I'm hoping Ubuntu Touch will be able to communicate with. Here's the problem though: the phone now doesn't seem to want to connect to any update channels and won't download any updates so I am unable to test to see if this will even work.
If you have any idea as to how I can make the phone connect to one of the update channels, I have made another question post here: https://forums.ubports.com/topic/6103/failing-to-fetch-update-channels

@adlinux You are asking the same question in two places now, please pick one and stick to that one. If this device (which I don't have) is on the Ubuntu Touch Installer you will have access to which ever channels are available to it and their updates. If i isn't and is still gsi dev only channel there will not be ota updates for the channel and you will have to update directly from the source available.
