You've successfully updated your software.

  2. After you've received first notification of the software update, you can manually initiate by going to Home > Applications > Settings > About Device > Software updates. Under System updates, tap Restart & install to install the update. Your device will power off and back on and the installation process will begin.

If you don't have a strong connection to Wi-Fi or the Verizon Wireless network, you may not be able to perform a software update over the air.
