Had anyone ran into this problem because the software update keeps failing every time when I try installing the software update but sometimes I think that the software update is out of date and it's keeps saying to visit a Samsung service center but the Samsung service center is really far probably in Dundee in Scotland...

@glebs1972: If you're having some trouble updating your tablet via Settings > Software update, then please try completing the update via Smart Switch on your PC or Mac. 

To begin with, please follow the link below, and click on 'How Do I Get Smart Switch On My PC or Mac' to download the relevant version

https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/mobile-devices/how-do-i-backup-my-smartphone-to-my-pc-or-mac/

Once installed, open Smart Switch, connect your Tab A using the USB cable that came packaged with the device, and look for an update prompt on the landing page, next to your device details.

Do you know anyone who has access to a laptop/computer? Alternatively, are you anywhere near a Samsung Service Centre/Experience Store?: https://www.samsung.com/uk/storelocator/

Hi. Did you manage to get this sorted as my tablet says just the same.
