AFAIK the Ellipsis 7 won't update over wi-fi, it requires a network connection.  An update to version 4.4.2 was released in Feb. 2015.  The last update was 10/4/17 and was a security update.  Since the Ellipsis 7 is almost five years old, it likely won't receive further updates.

MARMIL0, we want you to get the most out of your tablet. Here is a great place to keep updated on your Ellipsis 7's software. https://www.verizonwireless.com/support/software-updates/ Is your tablet connected to your Verizon account? Do you have a data connection with your WiFi off?

To update the software in your device, it is required to have it connected to our servers. Was the tablet ever activated in your account?

My tablet was connected to my Verizon account previously and I'm unable to update it any longer. Is there a way to force an update?

The tablet is required to connect to the Verizon server to retrieve the update which means it needs to be on an active Verizon account and connected to the 4G LTE network. That's if there is an update available.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
