If you are on official LineageOS 16 or Lineage os 17 and your device is present on the list of officially supported devices for LineageOS 17.1, you would still need to manually update your device as per instructions present on your device’s specific wiki page. The LineageOS updater app generally does not support upgrades from one version of LineageOS to another, so users have to make a conscious decision to update instead of being surprised by an OTA.
