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

Iam in same situation as yours... I tried to update my android phone around 1:15pm and it is still " Installing system update..." and now it is 2:00pm.
How can I reboot with out losing information? How long it will take to complete ? Do I need to wait to complete ?

😏 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?
