Fire OS 5.4.0.1 Update

Yesterday, I updated my Fire 7 (2015) from 5.4.0.0 to 5.4.0.1 with no problems. I then attempted to do the same thing for my son's Fire 7 (2015) and it wouldn't update. Then I tried my Fire HD6 (2014) and it wouldn't update either. Just before posting this, I tried both of them again and still no go. They both remain at 5.4.0.0.

Anyone else experiencing this issue?

The watched pot doesn't boil. My Fire HD8 2017 updated August 26. It should be available for download on the support pages before too long.

What I find strange is that I have two identical tablets; one updates and the other one doesn't.

They may want to let updates go out slowly at first to mitigate risk of regression, and only push it more broadly once they have some of us try it out. If there are some issues that crop up they can stop pushing the update until they have a solution and have limited the 'damage' so to speak. That's probably why it is not yet available for download - they are just trying to make sure.

As to how they determine which devices to push it to of those which are available, who knows? But probably they are looking for a representative sample of the installed base.
