Android 5.1.1 update for Galaxy S5

Received Android 5.1.1 today, and I'm finding that battery is draining even faster that 5.0. Also, bug affecting lock-screen notification was not fixed.. Frankly, I expected more from Google!!

Not google it's Samsung. Also a clean install helps. Clear your caches if that don't work factory reset.

I've downloaded the 5.1.1 update twice now, and both times the install has failed.  After the first failure, I cleared the cache partition, but still no joy second time around.  Any suggestions?

I have the same problem. I have more than 4.5GB Device Storage available. All it says is "Install Failed".

I've also tried the update twice. It failed both times, and prevents another attempt for 24 hours each time. It's unbelievable that we've had to wait more than six months for an update that includes security fixes, only to have the update fail repeatedly. It's as if the cell phone "experts" (Samsung and AT&T) can't manage a simple upgrade to a standard operating system. Is this the "premium service" we're paying for?

Unbelievable.

I finally got the upgrade to install by clearing cached data.This resulted in Device Storage free space of 7.06GB. This time the upgrade worked. Previously, with 4.5GB free space, the upgrade failed. I found an AT&T posting that says you need 4 - 7GB of free space. I don't understand why the wide range but, in my case, more than 7GB free solved the "install failed" issue.

Yeah, I'm fighting this issue now.  I have an older S5 that I got from someone and even with 7.1GB free, it is still giving the message that the installation was interrupted and failed.  I'm not usre if I even want to bother with fighting any longer, or just leave it since it is currently a wifi only device (I don't have an active SIM for it right now).

Thanks, BrooklynParkMikey. I had already cleared the cached data and had more than 7.06GB available (on the last three of four attempts). After three attempts with a clear cache (rolling the date forward to bypass the idiotic 24-hour wait time for re-attempt), and nothing. Failed at 1% progress each time.

 

I finally did a hard reset (so much fun) after backing up to Kies. Install worked, but then I had to put everything back together after restoring from Kies (which definitely does NOT put everything back the way it was).

 

Last Samsung/AT&T combination for me. This is way more work after too long a wait than it should be. It's clear that Samsung and AT&T both take the clean Android release and muck it up with poorly written and incompatible "enhancements."
