Sony management got back to me today and have said that FOTA is working as designed, when in my example the phone performed 5 lengthy updates taking hours, after my purchase.
Someone purchasing a phone may therefore choose to do a software repair, out of the box, depending how long the phone has been on the shelf, so to speak. The XC repair will take a customer straight to the latest update/firmware.
Sony will be training their call centre/support staff on FOTA and not directing then to a repair centre in the future.
I hope this helps someone

Hi again @huggons, thanks a lot for the update and I'm sorry that you had to wait so long for your answer and that you didn't get the right answer directly.
I hope that you are happy with the device and that everything is working as it should!

Hi again @huggons!
If they have been reported to your Local support team, they will follow-up with you when they have received more information and I won't be able to speed up that process, sorry.

Thank you for your message. I only wish that the local support team were able to log and follow up jobs, as per a "normal" support process. However for whatever reason, this is not within their capability. I have a number of outstanding reports, that are now with management, due to the failings of the normal support process failings.

Hi again @huggons.
That must be very frustrating and very sorry to hear about this.
Depending on the case, it can take some time to get an answer, and I'm sure that as soon as they hear something, they'll let you know!
