XB1 Diffivculty w/Event and Hot Fixes Applying

Hi,

I’m having difficulty getting hot fixes to apply properly and/or experiencing the current 10 year Anniversary Event.
Frequently, I’ll have been playing BL3 for 30 minutes or more before finally getting a notice that there is an update that needs to be applied. Is there a way to ensure that it applies at game startup?

Possibly related, I spent most of yesterday farming the bosses specified in the Anniversary announcement, but they failed to drop (even once) the loot specied. Is it because the event is implemented by hot fix? Even if it is, after I ran the update, the items still failed to drop (specifically, Aurelia and Rampager).

Finally, the game also tends to crash on me about every 90 minutes or so. Is there anyway to prevent this?
