Finally, the minimum requirements of Linux has been updated, which is as follows:

Chrome OS

    Is there any way to force an update on my Samsung Chromebook?

      You could try hitting the refresh button on the setting/help section. Had to do that with my Acer and it took days before I was even able to receive ver. 27. I guess like an OTA it just takes time before you’ll get the update with no real known way to absolutely force update.

      Also you probably have to connect to a ‘real’ wifi: I was on tethering from my mobile this week but only today as I connected to a ‘real’ wifi the update came immediately and by itself.
