Kindle question

I have a third gen Kindle, and I got this e-mail.



Your Kindle e-reader requires an important software update to continue downloading books and using Kindle services.

Plug your Kindle in to charge during the update.

Connect to Wi-Fi.

From the Home screen of your Kindle, select Menu or tap the Menu icon. Then choose Sync and Check for Items.

Leave your Kindle connected to both power and Wi-Fi overnight, or until the update is complete.

The software update will download and install automatically, even if your device is asleep. Your device may restart multiple times during the update process. You will get a final confirmation letter on your device when the update is complete.

If you do not update the device software by March 22, 2016, you will no longer be able to access Kindle services or get the update via Wi-Fi. To resume access, you will need to manually update the software on your Kindle. Please visit our Help page for more details on how to update manually.

Got the same - looks like this update is only for the first & second generation Kindle readers, including the Kindle DX (a second generation model)

More recent kindles run these updates in the background automagically.
