What’s happening here?
When the Android 7.1.1 was first rolled out, multiple Nexus 6 users reported numerous bug present on the new firmware. Earlier March this year Google also rolled out some bug fixes and security patches but this new update has a new bug that disabled the support of Android Pay.
It seems like Google has completely gave up the support for the Nexus 6 and all Nexus 6 will be forced to roll back to Android 7.0. It could also be the last official firmware available for Nexus 6 as its support period will be ceased around this year.
