Is there anyway to force an update? I've been stuck on 2020.8.3 for over a week now but have only had the car for 2 weeks

Not really. In extreme cases you can put in a service ticket on the App and ask for a software update.

But 2020.8.3 is really pretty new. Folks with new cars often go a few weeks before getting off the factory firmware version, which apparently you have already.

I went for three month without an update a couple years ago, and even with the new faster pace two weeks on a version isn’t unusual.

You can ask via a service request. I've done it a couple of times and they push the update to my car within hours. Did it yesterday and also received 2020.8.3. In the service notes from Tesla they said that I now have the latest firmware for my particular VIN. 2018 LR RWD Model 3.

My car has been asleep for over a week now because I've been stuck at home. I just woke it up for the first time yesterday because I finally got approval to turn on my solar panels and I had to set those up in the app which defaulted to my car and woke it up before I could switch over.

If the car is always asleep I wonder if it'll ever update?

Mine hadn’t been driven in several days when it offered me the 12.5 update yesterday. I don’t remember if there might have been minor events that woke it while parked.
 
I was stuck on 8.1 for three weeks while reading about all the new versions out there. For no good reason, I switched the car’s ‘update’ switch from ‘advanced’ to ‘normal’ (I forget the actual terms used in the car) and boom! the car said I could update to 8.3 toot sweet.
I suspect I’ll have to live with that version for a while since I hear that 12.5 is strictly for Yanks so us Canucks will have to wait it out.

No, I just got 8.3 as well on the new X long range plus. I guess it has to go through several updates.
