    It takes around 20-30min for my L520 to update.. Try again and check if you have enough storage

    The updates can last up to an hour have patience and avoid stopping an update on the process of installation, otherwise you could brick your phone.

    Give 30 mins to gears and then do soft reset. No need for recovery tool

    If you used the Lumia software recovery tool you should get Denim.
    So did you use the windows or Lumia recovery tool?

    Sometimes a sd card also causes this so you could try the update after you remove the SD card.
