Upgrading I-130 application after Naturalization to Immediate relative of US Citizen

My I-130 was received on Jun 8, 2017. I got my citizenship on November 21,  2018 and I mailed certificate same day to California processing center where case is in process. I did not hear back anything so I filed Inquiry for Dec 10, 2018 for undelivered notice. I got response saying: "Your request for an upgrade to USC has been forwarded to the adjudication officer.  The adjudication officer will make the necessary upgrade at time of adjudication." I noticed in the response that they did not mention the receive date of naturalization certificate. I have not received any update after that case status still says that case was received on June 8, 2017. How long should I wait or is there a way to track the progress on the upgrade of petition?


Its been 18 months on the petition

Its been 7 weeks since certificate was mailed

Its been 4 weeks since i got response from USCIS for upgrade of application inquiry.

You might not receive a notice of upgrade. In my case, the USCIS directly approved my petition 7 weeks after I sent the request, without a notice of upgrade.

How do you verify that the case is upgraded?
