Thanks for posting your question. I’m sorry to hear its taking so long to get your update. This is not typical and I’ll be happy to help you.
12+ hours is absolutely too long for the update to be taking.
I would recommend cancelling the update then wiping the cache partition on the phone and trying the download once more.
Keep in mind that this will not cause any information loss on the phone.
Please follow these steps:
The screen will show wiping cache on screen and reboot itself.
Once the phone has been restarted, please attempt to update the phone once more by using these steps:
Please let me know if this helps.

Don't think so. Smart Switch is available for OSX and Windows only. If you have another device, you can use Smart Switch for Android to Android transfers.

My phone is still saying "current software is up to date", however it's still showing I have version 5.1.1
I have tried factory resetting my phone and also using smart switch on PC, however I've had no luck.
Can anyone help??
