    Some of the updates I heard cause some problems like bootloops and install loops. Is that in the minority? How possible is it for an update to fail? Nexus 5X

    I don't know those statitistics, and don't have a 5x, but no update has caused problems for me, from 4.4.2 onwards, on Nexuses or any other devices.

    Like belodion, I don't have the statistics. However, any time a change is made there is a risk. Just as Google has issued updates that failed on some devices, Apple has also issued updates that failed on some devices. No rhyme or reason. However, Google provides the tools needed to re-flash a device if something fails.

    Yes, and I'll just add that my first Android, a Nexus 5, was running 4.4.2....I'm not suggesting that there may have been problems before that. I'll add also that I've had no update problems on Windows or iOS.

    Welcome to the forums. I don't think the failure rate is as high as you think. You can't use a forum to gauge it, because forums are where people go to for help with problems. It's kind of like going to an Audi dealer, looking at how full the bays are for car repairs, and concluding that Audi is not a good auto maker.
