RBR850 V4.6.8.2

My RBR850 had a firmware update message so pressed update all, only the router updated and the satellite is saying no new version available.

 

Netgear product support website makes no mention of the V4.6.8.2 so unable to manually update the satellite.


Any info on what this firmware is supposed to fix?

 

Thanks
