Updating Android system is not a hard thing to do as long as you have an internet connection to download the update. In this case, the update is 77 MB in size. And you have to download it once or else the package gets corrupt. Most users have been finding it a bit hard to update their system as the download doesn’t seem to respond after a while. For example, after clicking on Download, and your network drops, and as a result, the download fails, you might not be able to resume / restart the download. each time you try this, you’ll get the message that You have a downloading task.


The update system is set to download every 3 days by default. So, normally, you may need to wait for 3 days before you can re-download. But still, that downloading task will keep preventing you from starting a new download. To fix this, you will need to follow the steps below: 
  1. Launch the file manager and delete the file and the folder system_updates.
  2. Go to Settings > Date & time > Automatic date & time and disable automatic date and time. Select Off.
  3. Now set the date to 3 or more days ahead of the last date you started the update download. For example, if you clicked to download the update on the 26th of November, set the date to 29th or more. 
  4. Go back to the system update menu and check for updates. Then re-download the update. You can check the download progress on the notification drop down. 
  5. Once the download is complete, Click to upgrade
  6. You’ll get the prompt to install the system update package. Click Ok

Your device will now be reboot into Recovery Mode to install the update and optimize your Android OS. After the update, reset your time to automatic. 

If this doesn’t work for you, increase the date range and ,ake sure you delete the traces of the downloading update package.
