I have ZimaOS v1.1.0 installed. I do not see the option anywhere to update to the new version. There is no red dot.

Also, both of those download links give a 404 error saying this object cannot be viewed.

Question 1.About not seeing the update red dot, the system will show the red dot only after the update package is completely downloaded, you can check under /DATA/rauc/ to see if there is a folder for v1.2.0-beta1 and there is a raucb file of size 3.8 in it.
Problem 2. Due to our negligence caused the release of the link address is invalid, has been updated to the normal download address
We are sorry for this problem.
