    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? What's the exact message you see? "Android System updating now, Please try again later" doesn't make a whole lot of sense--try what again later? If it's in the process of updating, it wouldn't tell you to try again later. Are you sure it isn't telling you that it is unable to update the system now, please try again later?

    I'm having this same problem on the Sony Xperia Z1. It's been 'stuck' for about 12 hours or more now. I have tried multiple soft resets and nothing seems to fix it.

    Welcome to Android Central! See if you can boot into Recovery and wipe the cache partition: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-11663

    Here's a trick that accidentally worked for me:
    Turn your phone off, wait 10 secs (idk if the waiting helps but I did, so why jinx it right?
    hold down the volume down button and the power button.
    the screen should come on, then after a few more seconds turn itself off and restart (mine did anyways), as soon as it starts to restart, let go of the button(s).

    Hope this helps.

    Welcome to Android Central! Is it a notification in the swipedown notification panel? Is this happening when you power the phone on (from a powered off state), or when you wake the phone from sleep? What are you trying to do when you see that message (i.e., what is it telling you to try again later)?

    Same problem here. Cannot access Settings, do a factory reset, or make any selections during a cold boot. CAN access apps, including browser.

    Exact same message as alejandro6415 ('device' instead of 'deice'). Then there's a green Android robot icon. Rest of screen is blank. No actions or selections available from that screen.

    I installed the free Avast Anti-Virus (for Android), then scanned with it, and discovered that this IS indeed malware. Avast removed it, and the problem was resolved.

    Read the thread! It's a virus. Download & run AV; that should resolve it.
