    Welcome to Android Central! System updates usually take around 20-30 minutes, depending on how major they are. It shouldn't take hours.

    😏 To the above members: The reported delay to update
    is buggy. As pointed out above it shouldn't take more
    than 20-30 mins. Please reported to your carrier
    or wait for some..Techy member explanations

    Welcome to Android Central! How long has it been so far? The time of your post doesn't necessarily correlate with your timezone.

    Was this an official update pushed over-the-air, or did you download it from a website and try to install it manually?

    Welcome to Android Central! If it still shows it's updating, then something went wrong with the update process. Force a shutdown by pressing and holding Power and Vol Down for about 20 seconds. Then boot into Recovery Mode and wipe the cache partition: https://www.hardreset.info/devices/s...recovery-mode/

    After that, reboot the phone and try the system update again.
