Yeah, the same here. 3 days ago updated. Wondering what is changed.
Yesterday I had 2 cleaning passes schedule and roomba stopped to work in the middle of the room after 62 min near dock. App shows me that it is still cleaning but it was not. Clean button was not working. Only putting in dock helped.
I hope this "feature" was not added by this patch :-)

My 960 all of a sudden started having trouble docking. I cleaned the contacts thinking that they may have been dirty. It would come up with a stuck warning and be found 12” away from the dock. I happened to notice that update 2.4.4-4 was received just before this started happening. My brother who has the same model just commented that his 960 just started doing the same thing. That is what makes me think that there may be an issue with the new update.

and I thought it was just me. I am on my 3rd replacements 980 due to not updating and then suddenly it updated to 2.4.4-4 and stopped docking properly. I too cleaned the contacts but no go. Intermittent at the best. I was just about to pack it up for a 4th replacement and just read this forum. I guess I will have to wait for another patch update and hope for the best. At least it didn’t cost as much as a top of the range smart phone..... oh hang on, yes it did

Version 2.4
Release Date: 2018.01.11

Wi-Fi coverage map Beta (North America only).
Improvements in navigation and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Bug fixes and usability improvements.

So far I haven't had any problems with the 980 here.....I wonder if the other 980's had a problem loading the info....weak wifi or just an interruption?
