      Fazli, sometimes you may need to reset the phone. So try backing up your data, do a reset of your phone. Plug it to your PC and launch BlackBerry Manager. It should show you the update.

      One other thing to note is when you backup, you may want to disable ‘Social Feeds’ as it is know to coz delay and problems with backup.
