    No, I used the Advisor app. It downloaded the latest OS. Last week I got 218 update. 98% now works slick etc. Apart from no HEY CORTANA even if I try to switch Region & Language trick.
    I then tweeted @lumiahelp and they replied with "Hey Cortana is no longer available on some upgraded devices. You may send your suggestion using Windows Feedback. ^JR"
    Mystified !!!!!

    I've been frustrated by this since the upgrade..... HEY CORTANA supposed to be downloadable from App Store - Utter TOSH.

    Until. I found a work around.. microsoft.com/en-us/store/apps/hey-cortana/9wzdncrdr1mz (add the www. before, as normal. I couldn't add as it came out in gobbledygook)

    Download it - install it - Reboot - and we say in the UK "Bob's your Uncle" it works.

    Ok, so Windows mobile upgrade was a nightmare, but after doing latest updates, and installing Hey Cortana, I now have a great usable phone. Cortana now reads messages, tells me who has texted me etc. The OS seems solid, and I believe this is the turning point.
