    I went to check to see if I got the Feb 1 security update on my S21+ and I have been stuck on this screen forever. I have rebooted and also wiped the cache partition. Nothing works. Any thoughts?

    well after about 25 minutes of checking for updates it stopped and said up to date. I don't know why it took that long

    Toggle wifi off then on? Turn off mobile data also.

    PS: how to stop being automatically subscribed to a thread I reply to? Don't see as a preference option, don't recall that happening before.

    I just did that but only on one since I didn't see two system update apps. Then I went to check for software update and it is still taking an unusually long time to check.

    Ok thanks. Just did that and it did stop the one I had in progress. But then I went to check for update again and it is still taking a long time...still checking. It will probably check for another 20 minutes. Is this normal behavior for Galaxy Phones. Usually I would wait about 30 seconds at most to check for an update.

    I just turned Wi-Fi off and that did not help. Maybe it is a problem with Samsung's servers?

    If those things we tried and didn't work most likely something like that

    Do you have a galaxy? If so can you see if it is slow to check for updates?

    Wow it just finished checking. I timed it...took 29 minutes.

    Rebooting a modem and router can help in a number of ways... Also there is rarely a flat broadband rate everywhere and all the time. Even how you connect to ISP servers. Lots of hops going on.

    3rd party firewall can interfere. I had a bad LAN cable to a printer interfered with wifi on all devices. Interference or conflict from other routers on same channel.

    Even ISPs have trouble. Downed lines and server issues.

    There's a brick wall in my house that can get in the way.

    Checking mine, speed test shows 400, I pay for 300, but it is rare to see more than 250, and weekends tend to be slower. Luckily no ice storm or downed trees and lines.

    I've had 95% less issues since installing a WI-FI 6 router, plan to go 6E when that's out.

    You made me think of something if using a VPN try to disable that.

    If that was the case then everything would be slow and I am having no issues with anything else. Either on my phone or other devices.
