Mavic Mini will not update, getting "server error, wait a moment and try again" - tried a few dozens times and keep getting that message and my current firmware is 01.00.0000 Any suggestions??

Yes, tried both. This is my 12th DJI drone but the first I was unable to update.

maybe the server is overwhelmed by all the new drones being updated or is down due to internet issues

Does Assistant allow you to do a refresh of the existing firmware?
I downloaded the latest Assistant 2 - and Mavic Mini is in the compatibility list but does not even recognize my drone to do any sort of refresh (though my PC recognized the MM as a device).
Assistant 2 did recognize the controller so that's something I guess.

wifi to ac this morning very early and had no issue.
i did think it was odd that it seemed to be a mandatory update?

I was not even prompted to update even though I had the original firmware.

I download Assistant for Mavic yesterday on a Windows 10 PC, it didn’t recognise the drone initially, after rebooting it connected.

I have Windows 7, but rebooting didn't help, besides it did recognize the MM controller so I know it's not my PC that is the issue.

I have had a similar issue in the past. I used a different cable to the computer and it then worked. May be worth a try.

I always use the cable that comes with the drone.

True, but I've tried no less than 8 cables, 3 of which are DJI.
I used the stock DJI cable, PC recognised the SD card when I powered the drone on after rebooting, Assistant for MM only has the flight simulator option and refresh firmware, is your Windows PC up to date? I also read that Windows defender can block DJI as a threat.

Not sure about that - "flight simulator" was not an option in Assistant 2 - computer is not the issue as the MM controller was recognized and updated.

According to a popup after upgrading Assistant and firing up:
Start Assistant.
Power on MM
Connect to PC within 20 seconds.
