The update is not downloaded

Cash problem

This is one of the most common reasons, since the update installer may also be damaged due to the accumulation of temporary files. In this case, if we cannot download the update package or load does not exceed 0%, we will need to go to “Settings / applications” and select “Software Update” once inside, click on cleaning data and clean the cache. When we finished, we must refresh the device again from the setup, system and software update.

Check the battery

This is one of the things that Huawei clarifies and which can cause this problem. We always have to make sure that the phone is fairly charged. The system prevents and blocks updates if the battery charge level is below 20%. It is also recommended to fully charge the phone before continuing the update.

Problem with memory card

If we recently inserted a memory card into our mobile phone, it may be the cause of the problem. We must try to extract the memory card and try again. It is likely how the update may not work if the phone and memory card are incompatible. The brands of supported memory cards may vary depending on the device.

Enough storage space?

Storage space should be enough to download the update. In many cases, we live at the memory limit without taking into account that some updates require enough free space to be loaded and installed. Before upgrading, it is important to delete data on the phone or on the memory card. To do this, we can use Phone Manager, which has a cleaner of unnecessary files, which will undoubtedly give us an additional space required to update.

Huawei directly says that after installing Android 10, the definition of bank applications or messengers will function incorrectly, or not at all. And all this due to the fact that it did not work out to deal with optimization. Developers for the consequences of responsibility updates do not bear. And offer users to independently be responsible for test results.

Updated Android is not so much improved gadget, how much experiment. It will help to evaluate the results of technological development, but does not make discoveries for the user with ordinary needs.

  • Preload the device. Make sure that it is not less than 90%, because only this indicator is suitable for starting the update process. If you have problems with the battery, and the phone does not turn off the phone without your intervention, you should eliminate this problem before rebooting. If you do not do this, the overall emergency will be interrupted, and for the “renovation” of the device will have to refer to the specialists.

How to update honor manually

Manual update. the process is risky, and in case of failure, it may be necessary to reset the system to factory settings. After that, you will have to re-enter your Google or Huawei account and configure everything “from scratch”. To not lose personal information before upgrading Honor 8 (and any other model), it is recommended to create a backup date in the cloud or on a flash drive.

How to update Honor to Android 10 forcibly:

  • Go to Settings.
  • Open section “System”.
  • Select “Update software”. the program will check the relevance of the current version.
  • If a message appeared on the screen about the presence of a new firmware, install it by clicking on the appropriate line.

So that the installation has passed without failures, it is necessary:

  • Have enough space in the device’s memory.
  • Make sure the wireless connection stability. It is better to use Wi-Fi. the data will be transmitted faster than through the mobile Internet, and the likelihood of communication breakage in this case is minimal. In addition, updates spend a lot of traffic.
  • Charge the phone at least up to 60%. turning off the device during installation can cause a failure.

Important! You can not press the smartphone buttons or perform other operations until the process is completed.

And if it is not available?
