Hi lecta and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums!


Try doing a custom backup, using the BlackBerry® Desktop software, removing the "Search Options" database, then try the update again without selecting the automatic backup.  The following article will show you how to do a backup via the BlackBerry® Desktop Software.
