So I had a Lumia 928 last week that I successfully updated to GDR2/Amber. Unfortunately, that device was having issues (unrelated to the update, check "Can't Hear Callers" thread) and I had to get a replacement, which just came in yesterday. I activated the replacement Lumia 928, a refurbished unit, last night. I tried several times last night and this morning to update the phone to GDR2/Amber with some mixed results. It did do an update and my OS version is currently sitting at 8.0.10327.77, which appears to be GDR2 based on version number. However, my Extras+Info section does not show that it is Amber, and indeed it appears that version numbers here are older than those in Amber. I also don't have the other features that come with Amber (double tap to wake, peek function, etc.).
My question to you guys is did something go wrong with my update, or is it normal in this situation to receive Amber after already having received GDR2? Or, did I in fact not actually receive GDR2 but another update? Is there a way I can test if I actually have GDR2? I appreciate any information from those that might have an idea of what's going on.

By the way, sorry if the title of the thread doesn't exactly match my questions. I was initially under the impression that my phone had not received GDR2/Amber altogether and assumed it might have something to do with my phone just being activated last night, but I realized when looking up my OS version # that I may in fact have received GDR2, so my questions changed.

Download this app called SysApp Pusher
It has the links to download Nokia System Apps. Download/update each one of them and you will get everything that you are missing (display+touch & extras+info update)

Okay, so I tried what pankaj981 suggested first, and those two updates seem to have given me the missing features, even the call + SMS blocking. Additionally, in Extras + Info, it does now say Amber and those version numbers have been updated.
From everything that I can tell visually, it does appear to be exactly like my last 928 was after I upgraded to Amber. Even has group messaging, I can set Nokia Pro Cam as default camera app, etc. What I'm not sure of is if this just appears to be Amber on the surface, or if this is really everything included in Amber (like whatever firmware changes may have been behind the scene).

Edit: looks like it installed a total of 444 updated excluding the Spanish language keyboard I downloaded
