You said it displayed a error msg at the end? Mind trying to update it again and write down that error msg?

Possibly, since the NFC antenna is attached to the removable rear cover and contacts 2 points on the back of the phone. If the contacts are dirty or damaged, then the NFC will not work. Try using a bit of rubbing alcohol or better yet isopropyl alcohol and a Q-tip to clean the contacts on both parts. If that doesn't fix it, then take your phone to a store with a demo phone (or a friend if they have the same phone) and compare contacts to see if yours are damaged.
