I had semi-bricked / soft-bricked my Motorola Moto G6 smartphone as explained here: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Moto-G6-Moto-G6-Plus-Moto-G6-Play/Need-help-unbricking-a-Moto-G6-XT1925-13-and-restoring-stock-OS/m-p/5013164
And I was stuck trying to install the stock ROM again. Finally, I was able to install the stock ROM onto the device, but I am unable to LOCK it again. The problem I'm facing because of that is that I will not able to upgrade the OS at all.
fastboot.exe oem lock (bootloader) WARNING: This command erases all user data. (bootloader) Please re-run this command to continue. OKAY [ 0.021s] Finished. Total time: 0.029s fastboot.exe oem lock (bootloader) Check 'Allow OEM Unlock' in Android Settings > Developer (bootloader) Options OKAY [ 0.029s] Finished. Total time: 0.058s
When I boot into the OS, in the Setting > ... > Developer Options, "OEM unlocking" is already unchecked, as "Bootloader is already unlocked".
In its current state, I cannot upgrade the OS. It's currently at: Android 9.
When trying to check for upgrades, it says:
Android version: 9 Current version: PPSS29.55-37-7-10 Security patch level: April 1, 2020
Here is what the bootloader displays (I've hidden only the serial number):
