Updates very slow on XZ3

I use several Sony Xperia devices with great satisfaction so far.
Now I also installed /e/ on one and find it to be veeery slow when installing an upgrade OTA. It takes hours!
Even the download takes longer then usual.
All the older devices I have are much faster.
Any ideas how to find out if there are some settings messed up?
Or what else could I do?

It took over night to install the update!?

I’ve seen this on a FP3 for a few versions, but apparently from v1.13 → v1.14 the behaviour is now gone if you enable the screen, it took ~30 minutes. It did take significantly longer before (as in multiple of hours plugged+screen-enabled too) as described in the link.

There was a non-public gitlab issue as to the screen on/off behaviour as commented at https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/backlog/-/issues/5701#note_295656 - there’s no filed issue on general duration.

The ota updater is doing ahead of time optimization of dalvik executables. If it’s in the multiple hours for you a logcat might be interesting - run “adb logcat | tee logcat.log” during apply-update.

Updating v1.15 to 1.16 also took hours btw, and strangely also the download via wifi takes much longer as on other devices?!
Dont know if I can do that logcat thing next time, but I can try :slight_smile:
