It looks like Samsung forgot about the MID version of S21U for software updates for the last 2 months

I bought the s21u from the official reseller in Lebanon with MID Iraq code, the last update I got was from May

Unless you are living in that area you won't get an OTA update. Try Smart Switch for PC.

Looks like it is not just the Iraq, CSC MID, that Samsung has forgotten... Egypt, EGY, is also still on the May, AUE1, update. 

 

Libya, on CSC code BTC, has received no updates since AUB9, back in February!!!

 

However, Lebanon on CSC ILP, has received the latest AUG4 update for July. See...

Also, Turkey, TUR...

I might be more inclined to blame it on those particular countries official telecommunications bodies for authorisation. 😉

Which is weird because I am in Lebanon and bought the phone with official Lebanese warranty (given by the official Lebanese dealer) but it's MID, never encountered an ILP unit. Perhaps Samsung korea is not aware?  They should talk to Samsung Levant which is managing the region

Strange that you were sold a phone with a CSC code not intended for your location!

 

Contact your vendor and query this with them.

 

Far be it for me to suggest downloading the Lebanon, (ILP), firmware and installing it manually via Odin, as shown in my earlier link, as the Mod's on here might frown on that. 😉

Just chatted with Samsung Levant, they said MID is normal in Lebanon because it covers the Levant area (Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon)

Sit and wait or install Lebanon.

 

The choice is yours. 😁
