Today, 9.1.2021 phone offered me an update (A415FXXU1BTK5 ?).
When I accepted and initiated the update, it failed with
I repeated the update with clear data, restart, download, a few times with the same result.
Is there something known out there yet, what can I do but wait and try again in a few weeks ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Pugs1957: I thank you, sir (or madam), you obviously have experience (or just intuition) in the non-obvious workings of mobile phones. I got annoyed with the quite big yet in my eyes useless Samsung Smart Switch on my phone (not on the PC), as I did not plan to switch or move on to another phone, so I uninstalled it off the phone some weeks ago. As soon as you mentioned it, it occured to me that the phone update might also be using it to store and restore user data during a phone update. I reinstalled it on the phone and now the update is running normally. Samsung should include this in the needed apps or at least explain the reason of the failure after the update fails - it should be easy enough to detect. Have a great 2021 !
1. Bixby is the Samsung version of Siri, or whatever Apple has, at least how I understand (I don't use) it.
3. I understand the speed of fingerprint recognition is very much dependent on the CPU and firmware of the phone.
I use Nova launcher, I double-tap to activate-deactivate the screen.
Android Auto is an interface to show selected Android apps on the car screen. It has nothing to do with built-in car navigation. It's parallel to it.
Well, I did not. After the last fail I literaly just installed Smart Switch back and went to run the update again.
In between the previous fails I restarted the phone a few times, cleaned the Google Play Store data, check the storage space, ...
You are having the same problem ? Is your storage space sufficient ?
Yeah, tried updating multiple times for now. Storage space ain't problem, as there is more than 32 GB of free space. Not sure what I am missing. Thanks for help anyway, cheers.
edit: Smart Switch for PC did the job.
