    I currently own a Galaxy Centura through Straight talk and have it what I believe is the current version for the phone being 4.0.4.

    Tonight and last week a notification popped up telling me I needed to reboot to instal a system update. Both times when it got the point after rebooting and had the android creature icon thing updating it failed both times at about 1/4 of the way. When I went to the "about phone" menu it still indicated that I was on version 4.0.4 so nothing was updated and said I was currently running the latest version. Is there another update out or is my phone trying to update when there isn't really an update available or what? Anyone else having this problem?

    There was a system update but it was just patches and a new kernel. The version is still the same. As to why it keeps failing I have no idea. Are you using wifi and if not was your 3g signal good? If all else fails, maybe you should back everything up and do a factory reset and try to install the update again.

    The times I tried when it failed I was connected to my Wi-Fi, ironically the two times I've updated before that it worked it was just off my 3G when I was at work. How recent was this update? Would it have changed the current system version still even if it was a minor update? To my knowledge anyways the last one that came out (and one that worked for me) was shortly after xmas or before/near new years I thought?

    That's the only one I know of. See this thread. Some people got it later depending on where they lived, for example my wife got hers about a week after me because she was in a different state. This one must be new. The system version will always be 4.0.4 because that is the latest and last version of ICS. Any updates are patches to fix bugs, updates of system apps etc. The only thing that changed in the about phone section was the kernel version.
