I have a site using version 1.4 of the Google Analytics module and I wanted to upgrade to Universal Analytics. The module page says that I need the 2.x version of the module, so I updated to 2.x-dev, ran update.php (no updates necessary), and cleared the cache.

I then logged into Google Analytics and went to Audience -> Demographics -> Overview, after which I clicked Validate tracking code, but this failed.

So, I went to the module's config page (admin/config/system/googleanalytics) and checked Track display features under Search and advertising. I then cleared the cache.

I again tried to re-validate but it continues to ask me to validate.

What more do I need to do to upgrade to Universal Analytics?

    Worth mentioning I did a write on this (especially if you have custom GA tracking code) on my blog pixelite.co.nz/article/…

I upgraded to 2.0, cleared the cache several times, and then waited about an hour-- now it works! So I guess sometimes you just have to wait a bit after upgrading.
