Sailfish Events view shows a notification on available Sailfish OS updates. This notification should vanish on a successful installation of the OS update. If it persists in the Events view, the following procedure should remove it:

  • Enable the Developer mode (if not done previously). See this help article .
  • Open Terminal app
  • Give the command

rm /home/defaultuser/.cache/sailfish-osupdateservice/os-info


rm /home/nemo/.cache/sailfish-osupdateservice/os-info

depending on the admin username of your phone.

  • Finally, go to “Settings > System > Sailfish OS updates” and pull down “Check for updates”

This should do the trick.

@svalmont 's method worked on my Jolla C.

Would it not be nice to have an env var set for this? So one could also look for this to know which version was flashed and so which is the admin name (nemo on devices with flashed image <3.3, defaultuser for >=3.3).

I didn’t have to wait for a day, worked right away for me.

Thanks to all of you, the approach suggested by @svalmont did the trick for me.
