Garage Door Closed on Trunk of my Y right after software update.

On the night/morning December 27/28, 2021 my Model Y did a software update (version 2021.44.25.2). At 5am, I used the switch on the wall to open the garage door. Unplugged charger. Opened trunk to put some bags in. Closed truck. Opened driver's door. When screen came on, it said software updated. Closed it. Also had message that car charged to 100% I always have it set to 85%. Slid charge bar back to 85%. Put foot on brake and waited for all test lights to go out. Put car in R. Waited a second and started to back out of garage when then was this loud noise. The garage door closed on the trunk of my car. No warnings from car obviously since door came down. Garage door sensor is low so has to catch a tire in the beam to stop door. Pulled back into garage. Looked what happened and now late for work. Backed out slowly and door stayed open. I have always kept homelink set to manual. When I drive up to the garage door I push the homelink button to open. When I back out of garage I push the homelink button to close garage door. As I was driving away from the house I manually closed the garage door. I watched it go down but did not see it close all the way. My wife called me a couple of hours later and asked why I did not close the garage door. I said I had. Went to the local Tesla service department today. They will download the logs and I have an appointment for 2 weeks. The manage said this was not a Tesla problem or homelink issue and was responsible for repairing the car. We shall see. To be continued. Anyone else seen this lately? Thanks.
Just had a similar thing happen to me. Software update a few days ago. Returning home from a morning errand, pressed the button on screen to open the garage and started backing into the garage. Looking at a backup camera, heard a bang and saw the garage door going back up. It hit my back window! Unbelievable. Luckily no damage except for a scratch on my window.

I had a similar occurrence but was caused by me trying to swipe way the stupid Cold Weather Tips and my finger must have then touched the HomeLink button that was underneath the Weather Tip. I hope a software update fixes that ASAP. I now have a scratched rear hatch.

Yep that Cold Weather tip is a stupid idea - the fact that it comes up EVERY TIME with no way to prevent it from turning on again. What, so 7 months of the year I have to deal with this now? It's something I would have expected from a legacy automaker, not Tesla.
