    Welcome to Android Central. Can you give us a few more details? Is the phone telling you that you need to update your system? Does it tell you what system update is pending? Devices may limit your ability to download system updates over mobile data, since those updates are often very large files, which can impact your data plan.

    Does your phone work on other wifi networks besides your home wifi network? Review this guide and see if the tips help: [GUIDE] Troubleshooting Wi-Fi Connection Problems

    Try not to get too frustrated--we'll see if we can help as much as we can.

    Well, I am sure you can bypass the same by try going to the settings>system>about device>software update> uncheck the Wi-Fi only option in your device now the update via data connection is possible, but one more thing as system wan't you to connect you with the WiFi connection for updating, It means the size of update might be too large I'll say only move forward when you have I have subscribed for unlimited data plan because I am sure the doing this without subscribing for the unlimited data plan would ended up you in nothing more than a long list of bill.
