    Welcome to Android Central! Are you not getting updates pushed to the phone over-the-air? What happens when you go to Settings>About Phone>System Updates​? Are you sure the updates you were trying to install were for your exact phone model?

    There is no update under about in the settings...there is a ZenUI updater in settings that just takes me to app list....I think the problem is I bought it off eBay it must have a Chinese rom under this or something. The phone will not update itself unlike my ZenPad 7c that I bought here in store.

    Its a zenFone 2 with 32gb and 4gb ram...but it must be a China model as it doesn't pick up 4g band here in Canada which I could live with if I could update it and stop this location permission stuff

    What's the exact model number of the phone? Does it say in Settings>About Phone​, or on the box that it came in?

    The weird thing about the Zenfone 2 is that I don't think Z00AD is the correct model number. It should be ZE551ML for the 32/64 GB versions, or ZE550ML for the 16 GB versions. My Zenfone 2 also says Z00AD, but it was a promotional one I got through Android Central, so I'm not sure why it's labeled that way. System updates for me are for the ZE551ML.

    There's an ASUS rep on this forum somewhere named asus_usa. Let me PM him/her to ask for some assistance.

    The ZE551ML will show model number as ASUS_Z00AD.

    The 32GB model is not sold in North America. You probably have the international version. I can check by serial number. Please feel free to send me a private message to email below.

    Please see the following for 'Firmware update fail'
    Software - Firmware update fail

    Please see the following for 'ZenFone 2 support band list'

    Hi tdimarkmcvittie,

    Factory reset your device & wipe cache partition.

    Check if you receive OTA later it should solve your issue & you should only select your region flashing different region ROM might harm your device.
