I have an unlimited plan so dont see why i cant download the update via mobile data the option simply does not exist or i simply cant find the correct setting can some one please advise as this is very annoyinggg. Thank you

There is no option to use Mobile data to download software updates as you should already be able to do so. I have an S20 Plus and I have downloaded many software updates over mobile data with no issues.

That's a conundrum as I always use Mobile Data to update my phone's software when it becomes available @Nabz1

Which carrier are you with @Nabz1 as this maybe a contributing factor.

I'm on o2 with a 100Gb Payg data allowance.

I always update my phone's software using Mobile Data.

Have you tried a Google Search  ?

When you tap on the update button can you screen shot what it says or does that screen pop up straightway that you've already supplied @Nabz1 

I know you can change the settings when updating apps via the Playstore to work over Wi-Fi or Mobile Data but updating the phone's own software should let you do it over Wi-Fi or Mobile Data as long as the signal is strong enough.

I see 5G is on.

Just as a process of elimination can you go into Settings,  Connections and switch to 4G to see if that makes a difference.
