R6900P not updating?

Hello all. I have the R6900P router and received an email that a firmware update is available for my device. When I go into the nighthawk app and go to upgrade firmware it says No new Firmware is available at this time. My current firmware Version is v1.3.1.64. Anyone know what could be the issue? Thanks.

There is a new update out. You can manually update. I'd recommend doing a manual update over a hardwired connection. That's the best route to do it anyway. We tend to find that people with corrupt firmware issues, tended to have updated over wifi or via the app. 

here's where you can get the newer firmware.

So I attempted the hard wired update method. When I went to admin and router update and searched for new firmware it tells me there is no new firmware available. I am clearly on the older version firmware of v1.3.1.64. Any ideas of what is going on here?

the firmware doesn't always get pushed out to the auto-update server right away. which is why I recommended manually updating.
