How to update your CHROMEBOOK

I came across such question and thought my solution will be important.

QUESTION:: Unable to change channel and/or update my chromebook.

"Anytime I try to update from Version 45 to newer it says that my system is already updated...It does the same when I try to change from stable channel to beta or developer.

In both cases the Chromebook does not download and update anything and run always on 45 version even after multiple reboots....Does anybody know what's happening with my Chromebook and how could I fix it?"

Absorbing this amount of content would be alot if you are just reading it,so i have put together a very simple video for you to follow step by step.

MY SOLUTION::

STEP 1.

Switch on your chromebook if it is off.

STEP 2.

Try issuing this command string in order to Open the CrOSH shell:This is done by pressing the keyboard buttons.

copy
     
 "Ctrl + Alt + t"

That command above will open the crosh (Chrome OS developer shell) as illustrated below.

STEP 3.

When the CrOSH shell is open, issue this command.

copy

  update_over_cellular enable

command_to_update

After that command,Press Enter and such a message will be outputted on the screen.

STEP 4.

Lastly type "exit" to leave the shell

Then try to update again.Hope this solution helps you and incase you have any query feel free to click those social media links in the footer below to connect with me.
