We decided to stop supporting Lollipop Marshmallow OS to protect our Android users given that Google, the company looking after the Android operating system, stopped offering support for Lollipop Marshmallow about two years ago. This means that there have been no updates for this version of the operating system, including some critical security fixes.
Note: The upgrade process is similar for all Android devices, although the interface might vary. If your device fails to check for updates, it could be a possibility that your mobile device doesn't support the latest Android OS versions. In such cases, you should look for updates by searching the web using the mobile device Make and Model or you can upgrade your device.
