Xperia Care will only read what is on the web page for any model. They won't explain why an update is or is not available. They can't explain, for example, why the 4.3 update was totally removed for the C6506 after 5-February and why the "latest version" is a regression from 10.3.1.A.2.67. For C6506, the current version is listed as 10.3.1.A.0.244! They will say "Each region has its own schedule for release."
Quite frustrating. Inquiring minds would like an official response.
Maybe this is part of the problem. PTCRB has the wrong upgrade version showing. 14.1 instead of 10.4.

I reset my phone. The last update I had received was for Android 4.2.2 Firmware 10.3.1.A.2.67. I ran PC Companion and it told me I was up to date. Thinking if I reinstalled the software it might permit me to see a 4.3 upgrade again, I got this message.
So because I have a version later than the now so-called current C6506 firmware, 10.3.1.A.2.67 versus 10.3.1.A.0.244, the whole update process is borked. Sony, kindly fix this. Something went seriously wrong with this model and others too based on the chatter here.

Ok I am going straight to the point.. The phone IS Amazing with Excellent specs and really fast, But since the update KitKat 4.4 was released the Camera is acting up 300% than usual, it was so easy to access and start taking photos then, but now it takes about 1 minute to start the camera and sometimes it stays blacked-out for a while and nothing happens until I try to turn off/on the Screen and here's where my Heartbeats start running fast, the phone simply turn off for like 3-4 minutes without any responds at all no matter how many times I try to press turn on button, it feels like it was knocked out. nevertheless, I am here to see if someone is also having the same issue and have had their problem fixed and how. Again, The camera takes like 1-2 minute to start and sometimes at capturing photos it just takes the photo, and get stuck at it for 20-30 seconds and then it doesn't save the photo and it force-closes the camera app and says "camera has stopped working" "Wait.Cancel.Close".
Sorry for the long Message, but I am really worried about my device and this thing affects other things in my software/Hardware and I am not sure if it can anyway.
THANKS a Ton in Advance Hope you guys Got time to reply soon.

So do you think someone will help us here? I am not sure if there is a fix for that now, until a new firmware comes out we will still encounter this problem... is it possible that I go back to OS 4.3 ? I think it was the best for Z1, very fast and even more user-friendly, I kinda didn't like that new notification and setting separated from each other. Actually, 4.3 was better in everything.. lol it's harsh, I've been fighting my friends, my brother and parents who all use IOS, and they call me an idiot for using Android based phone and I keep on telling them that sony is best, I am doubting that now. I think its time to get over these ideas and get something that really improves when a new firmware is out... right?
