With all due respect, Jon, nobody is addressing the big elephant in the room. This tablet is set up as a PHONE. If you look into the system settings, "airplane mode" is available, and there is a "network" (cellular) tag. Finally, in the system update, there is an option for regular automatic "OTA" (Over the Air) updates.
This is the reason that we get this message that we need to check the network - it is referring to the CELLULAR NETWORK, and not the local LAN.
Insignia needs to address this problem, notify registered owners that there is a patch available for manual download and instructions on how to apply the patch.
Until this happens, the tablet will NEVER update itself thus leaving owners to security breaches, bugs that aren't fixed, and compatibility issues that continue to plague the tablet.

I guess this is a lost cause. I realize that these tablets are cheap, but the old saying rings true that you get what you pay for. Its a sad situation that Best Buy and Insignia don't support these products especially since the original design is flawed.
When these tablets break I'll toss them and buy another brand that's rated more reliable!

I ended up writing to Insignia Corporate offices. I got a response back that the message that the "OTA update failed" is actually an error in the programming. The tech said that it should have been programmed to read "no update available".
He said that an update is coming out soon, but didn't give an estimated release date.
In the end, I guess when you pay less than $100 for a tablet, we shouldn't expect top of the line hardware.
