System updates over mobile data?

Hello, I have an S21 FE, and I can't seem to figure out how to download system updates over mobile data. If this is something that is arbitrarily locked down, and I can't change a setting to allow it, that would be a deal breaker for me, and I will have to be more careful next time I buy a phone (as in not get another Samsung).

 

This is the most expensive phone I have ever bought, and it also seems to be the most locked down. I couldn't even switch to 4G only when in areas where 5G coverage is slow and unreliable. Luckily I found a third party app that allowed me to solve that issue, but it is kind of pathetic that I would have to do such a thing for such a simple setting that has been present on every android phone I've ever used. 

 

So now I am having another issue of the software being excessively locked down. I have unlimited, unthrottled data, and I don't want to have to be tethered to Wifi for any reason at all. Please help me.

I have a S20+ which lost the ability to connect to WiFi 2 weeks ago. I have the same problem as the first poster, I cannot download the latest android update over mobile data and none of the solutions mentioned above work. Samsung have not responded to my requests for assistance.this phone will soon become not worth using.

Currently not home, want to update, can't. Enough data to not care, so I want to force this through. Have done so before, can't. This is is unacceptable. It's not just Samsung, it's virtually everyone in the last 15 years, it's been getting worse and is going to get worse. It needs to be stopped.
