    'Nothing' nothing happens, or does it give you a 'Your device is up to date' message? If the latter, well, that's because there are just no OTA updates available.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your reply. <3
    Absolutely nothing!! The button is not gray. it is totally functional. But after tapping. it does nothing!!!
    I have a unlocked version of the phone.
    Under the "Update Now" says: The last checked is 31/1/2015

    I'm assuming you've tried rebooting your phone? That happened to me once with my tablet. I'm guessing the search for an update gets stuck. But a reboot fixed it.

    You could also try connecting it to Kies on a PC and have Kies look for the update, see if that 'resets' the status.

    Yeah, rebooted the phone twice but still the same.
    Thanks for the second suggestion. Actually, right now I cannot access a WIN OS to try it but I will and then updating the thread.
    Thanks SO MUCH. <3

    No problem, and let us know if that helped. You can also try booting up your phone in Safe Mode and see if it works there. I remember a case where the option was grayed out and updating through Kies actually helped.

    Just tried with Kies and it says :
    Latest version is installed
    Installed version : Ver. 3.2.15024_8

    .
    But still no sign in the phone. Also tried the safe mode.
    Whats wrong with it?
    Is it suppose to show me the same massage (or something like that)?
    .
    .
    UPDATE:
    Also tried disconnecting internet to check that maybe the phone show a "no internet connection". But still no sign of life in the "Update Now" !!!

    It's an S5, so it's still under warranty. Bring it to your carrier and ask them to please look at it. (Make sure everything is backed up - they may replace it.)

    Actually it's not the point.
    What they can do? A Factory reset and at least do a flash.
    I can do all of them. I'm tying to avoid them. they will take the weekend ! and I need the phone services.
    Could you guys please help me for just a simple solution?

    There is a very good chance if you are unlocked, that you wont ever get carrier updates. . Who are you with, and what carrier is the phone designed to run on?
    All the US carriers do special bloatware to keep you tied tp their system.

    Also, boot into safe mode and factory reset is an option to try.

    My S5 is unlocked, and I was able to do an OTA update, so being unlocked is not preventing the update.

    Unfortunately all the 'simple' solutions we can think of have been exhausted. At this point you have three options I can think of:
    1) Get another S5 with the same OS version as yours (maybe a friend's or one in a store). Does that one have the same 'issue'? If so, maybe that's just how it is and until there's actually an update you won't be able to see anything.
    2) Do the factory reset yourself. If it's still not there, you might get it replaced.
    3) Take it to a store and have them do the factory reset/ROM re-flash. If it's still not there, have them

    I'm very grateful for your response
    I think, at the end, a factory reset (or a flash maybe) is all I have.

    Same symptoms you described I was seing when software update was disabled in settings, all apps. Worth checking in disabled apps if it got disabled somehow.

    Try long pressing. I don't know if it was that or because it was the third time i pressed it.
