    hello and welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    are you rooted? if you are do not accept the update. it could brink your phone or unroot you with no way to re-root as of yet. all you would have to do is flash a stock rooted ota rom and you are good to go. but if you are not, then you can just go to settings/system updates/software updates.

    lol if you do not know then you are not. unless you got it on ebay or something like that. but you can just update your phone by doing the software update.
