LG has “temporarily suspended”¬†its rollout of Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the G4 less than two weeks after it began. The company told users on Twitter that it ran into technical troubles.

LG boasted that its G4 was the first third-party Android to get a Marshmallow upgrade — after Google’s own Nexus devices — but it seems the company’s rush to deliver it may have backfired.

LG Poland has been telling fans on Twitter that the update “is temporarily suspended due to technical reasons.” The company¬†promises to provide updates when they’re available, but for now, G4 owners should expect to see Marshmallow arriving anytime soon.

Given that Poland was the first market to receive Marshmallow for the G4, the update obviously didn’t get very far before it was pulled, which isn’t great news. Hopefully LG will be able to fix this problem sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, you can download LG’s official Marshma]llow update for manual flashing if you’re comfortable going down that route. Bear in mind, though, that this release will contain whatever “technical issue” LG has discovered since the update was released.
