Any way to force a firmware update on the smarthub 2?

I bought a 2nd hand smarthub, and its on firmware 15.x. Ive had it connected and running for the last week but its still on that firmware, it doesnt seem to want to upgrade. Ive tried a factory reset, etc.

It would need to be initiated by BT, and its possible that its serial number is not on the update database. I assume you do have it connected to a BT Broadband connection?

If you look in the event log on the home hub, see if you can see any attempts to communicate with ACS, I cannot remember the exact sequence, but something like 

CWMP: Session start now, server: https://pbthdm.x.x.x,

As it was second hand did you factory reset the hub before using?

Quite possible. 

If you are with Plusnet, why are you posting on a BT Retail Customer Forum, it would be best to ask on the Plusnet Customer Forum?

Plusnet Forum - Index | Community Site

Its possible an admin person there could force an update if they have the serial number of the home hub?
