I have Blackberry 9500 and am trying to update and I am getting a message that I am unable to update.  It does not give a reason why.  Could somepne help me please?

Re: Can't Update OS



Can you perhaps provide further details? For instance, what OS are you updating from and to? And how exactly are you making the attempt -- OTA, DTM, or downloaded OS package? And where, exactly, in the process does the message present? And is "unable to update" the precise error message? I suspect not.
