Tablet has not had an update in 2 years. I check it all the time and it refuses to register. Last Samsung product I will ever buy.

You should probably check website for tech specifications and recent updates. Even checking for updates within the store you purchased it...

I bought it directly from Samsung's website. Samsung told me to take it to I break you fix or You Break I Fix or something. I am an old cripple and shouldn't really have to do this should I?

I can find it on sammobile but nothing on Samsung site. It is strange. No more Samsung for me. I am two years behind on security updates. I trusted this outfit.

Try using Smart Switch

Smart Switch for Windows https://www.samsung.com/global/download/smartswitchwin/

Smart Switch for Mac  https://www.samsung.com/global/download/smartswitchmac/

Step 1. Connect your device to your computer using the USB cable provided with your device, and then open Smart Switch on your computer.

Step 2. If a software update is available, Smart Switch might automatically prompt you to update the software or will display an option to update

Step 3. Click Update and use the on-screen prompts to download the necessary files

Step 4. Click OK to proceed. Your device may turn off and on a few times during the update process. When the update is complete, the device returns to the Home screen.

Note: Don't disconnect the USB cable or use your device .

My tablet came with usbc/usbc but my laptop has no usbc. Will a usbc/usba work?

Okay I have been studying Smart Switch. If I'm following what it does is forces the tablet to update in order to make smart switch work correctly? But since I'm really not switching tablets or transferring any data to any tablets I'm really just going to be running Smart Switch to force an update?
