    I just got my new Galaxy S4 after I had problems with a previous, defective one. As expected, I received the message that a Software update was available. I connected the phone to my computer and used Verizon's Updater Assistant program that installs when you connect it. I used this method because I had previous issues with the phone dropping then reconnecting to my router every so often and I didn't want to interrupt the update.

    Everything was installed and no errors occurred. Skip to the next day, I turn on my phone and the message pops up that I have another update. Confused, I connected the phone again and it said everything was up-to-date. I then just hit install on the phone itself and it began to update but then immediately said "error" and stopped. The phone started up like normal and I went to "About Phone" and checked for updates and it said everything was up to date. However, the "About Phone" icon is still yellow indicating that there is a problem (I presume). I'm assuming the update failed because it was already installed but what's up with the icon still saying there is a problem? And say I just installed it directly off the phone and my internet did end up dropping for a second, would that damage the update in anyway?

    Android Version is 4.2.2

    Baseband version is ME7

    Have you tried rebooting into recovery and clearing cache?

    OK. The only other thing I can think of is to flash the mist updated ROM through Odin.

    When I updated my phone my "About Phone" Icon turned from Blue to Yellow. That should be normal.

    On my other phone it was blue even after updating. I somehow doubt that yellow is a good sign since it is usually associated with caution. You might be having the same problem as me. That or I'm wrong and yellow is normal.

    Yellow is the normal color for "About Phone" in Settings. There isn't anything wrong with your phone.
