I too have this issue. I'm stuck on Android 7. 

I have a Samsung s8 SM-G950F. it won't update to android 8, it's stuck on 7. It says no updates available.

baseband version g950fxxu1aqj5

I also tried updating with Smart Switch, but that also said my device is up to date. any ideas?

Sorry for the late update, I managed to contact the seller and was told contact Samsung directly which then told me to visit them in store so they can have a look and manually install a new system on it. 

 

After the system(probably the main UK version) has been installed I have been informed that my phone as said before was intended for a different market and will probably not receive any updates, unless I go to them so they can install it for me if I wanted to (probably can do it myself too but wasnt sure how it would affect warranty/knox). 

However after a few days a new update came out for teh S8 and I was curious if I would get that update so I checked it and I have received the update, going to see if I still can get new updates when one comes out so it might be a fix.

Guys, i have bought a s8+ from eGlobal (China site) and i am also stuck with the februari security patch, the phone says it is up to date.  I understood that this is due not being for the european market.  Just letting all you guys know, there is a downside of buying cheaper stuff:/  I did not know before, but i will not buy this again.  I will stay with my local dealer.
