I noticed that the Android 6.0 update for the LG G3, scheduled for March 16th, was removed from this: http://forum.telus.com/t5/Mobility/Software-Update-Schedule/ta-p/53566. Any reason why?

The usual reasons Android updates get pulled or delayed is if a problem was found with them, or if the manufacturer decides to hold an update so a security path can be included. Considering Rogers and Bell don't have any date listed for the G3, I suspect it's a large bug they're all dealing with.

 

Buy a Nexus device if you want system updates first / months ahead of the rest. Don't give business to phone manufacturers that don't respect their customers.

I wouldn't be so quick to blame LG for this. 

Verizon, Europe, and many Asian and African country have received the update.  For the G3.

I am aware there are different models for the G3, but the differences between the devices are small.  This is partly why some people flash their phones with firmware/software from other G3 variants. 

The fault here lies with Telus (and with the other Canadian mobility monopolies).

 

Canadians will continue to be gauged and robbed if we don't allow international competition in the internet/phone markets.

That's such a bad solution, sorry.

 

As said above, other LG G3 variants have received the 6.0 update. The fault here is with TELUS and Bell, and other Canadian carriers. I'm literally running a port of the Android 6.0 firmware from the LG G3 D855 variant until the official update comes out for the Canadian D852 variant. TELUS should tell us what the delay is if there is any.

I have the update already.  Some people have already received the update OTA, while others haven't yet.  I think they roll it out in batches to avoid straining the system.

 

You can get the update officially through LG's tool if you don't want to wait.

To do so, navigate to the site below:

http://www.lg.com/ca_en/support-mobile/lg-LGD852

 

Scroll down and click on “Software Update”, and follow those instructions.
