    How fast is your internet, that would be a factor but I have read times before some phones have randomly taken ages to update with gears showing for ages

    The files are already downloaded from before,while spinning cogs it just apply/install the update,in the last 2-3 updates i did,it always took 2-3 hours.I guess next time i will do the updates at night lol

    I had the same issue before.. Make sure the Wi-Fi was connected before you start to install the Wi-Fi

    That all depends upon your internet speed if you are saying that it is taking time in downloading them or if you are talking about the windows updates then it rely upon the manufacturer

    On my 920 the latest update took more than 15 minutes. Probably closer to 40 minutes. The 520 is slower so if it took 2 hours that's not surprising to me.

    520 is not slower ,, here approx 35minutes only

    920 updates normally take close to 45 min for me. Updates can take long if your phone is having many apps and personal files. Sometimes, removing the SIM prior to updating can speed up the process.
