Got message saying V6 was going to download, but then it didn't happen

    My dad emailed me last night to say:

    "Version 6 will download tonight at 9 p.m., the message said on the display.

    "The message was quite large and announced the v. 6 would be downloaded and gave three options:
    9 pm
    set time
    do not

    Those are not exact quotes. I tapped on "9 p.m." and assumed that was what I was supposed to do.
    No message since."

    He has an S85 that he got last October. I also have an S85 but left it at home today for my wife to drive, had to go to work early so no time to power up my S and check my display. But I don't see any posts from other owners about seeing a similar message in their cars.

    That seems very odd that my dad's S said that V6 was going to download and then nothing happened.

    This seems a bit odd since up to now, the car has never announced which exact version it was installing (and this has been a highly requested feature).

    I find it surprising that it said which version before installing. If true, it's great to see Tesla's heard that request and responded.

    Yes, sure and okay to all those responses.....but: has anyone else received that statement? My screen hasn't alerted me (just checked. 0942 AK STD Time).

    I saw a notice of new firmware available displayed on the 17" last evening, and accepted it for installation overnight, though I had people in the car and didn't pay attention to the details; but I don't think it announced the new version number. I haven't been out to the garage yet to see if it installed, or what version it is.

    [update]

    Ah, nuts: it's just 5.8.7. Move along, nothing to see here...
