    WAIT for it to FINISH

    Since this was just posted, the update takes time. It's backing up your phone, installing, restoring your phone, etc. - could take a half hour. Patience

    The progress bar will eventually jump ahead, then reboot, then start the restore ...

    Or your battery ran out while updating. Happened to a family member. Luckily the phone didn't brick. We plugged it in, the phone started and the spinning gears screen came up again. Update finished successfully after that little scare

    Advice: Always leave plugged in while updating
