      It might be due to various issues. Check for any OTA update available and install it. Delete any old update.zip file from your device. Also,try wiping cached data.

    Hi.
    I managed to successfully get this update installed. Might there be a security update that’s come out since this which I can install to be fully up-to-date? Please let me know.
