Samsung has begun rolling out the CVDD update with the May security, bugfix and enhancements release for the S21 series of international devices.

Initially, as always, this is a staged rollout to the non-carrier branded, stock Samsung CSC codes first.

The Galaxy S21 international devices that will receive this update are...

  • S21 5G model SM-G991B
  • S21+ 5G model SM-G996B
  • S21 Ultra 5G model SM-G998B

This latest release replaces the previous G99*BXXS4CVD2 build on the international devices.

Changelog

  • Overall stability of your device has been improved
  • The security of your device has been improved
  • Camera
  • The Night Portrait feature has been enhanced
  • The quality of pictures taken with social or camera apps downloaded from the application store has been improved
  • The 'Auto framing' feature is supported in video mode and some video call apps
  • After updating you will not be able to downgrade to the old software because of updates to the security policy

It is a FOTA, (Firmware Over The Air), update and you can check... Settings > Software update... to see if it is available for you. Alternatively, you can connect to the Samsung PC suite, Smart Switch and check via that.

From your screenshot, you are running a very old Android 11 release from April 2021, AVDB.

 

This update was never issued by Samsung for O2.  If you received your device direct from the O2 network, as should be the case, then take it up with O2 directly.

 

If, on the other hand, you purchased it via a 3rd party reseller who may have flashed it with any old firmware, take the matter up with them.
