Did anyone have problems manually updating their original Arlo's wireless cameras this morning?

I had to do it multiple to get them to upgrade successfully. It was annoying. Smiley Sad

In a word "yes".

 

I had to restart my base stations a few times and trigger firmware updates multiple times on certain cameras (they kept failing).

 

Arlo firmware upgrades have always been a very painful process, in my experience.

Weird. I never had to restart my base station to update the cameras.  I just had to do about ten retries for each one. Argh.
