    You wont receive the updates like you receive a sms. Switch on internet on your Lenovo A6000. Go to Application “Updates” and tap it. you will find the update there. Alternatively go to “Settings”. From there go to last option of “Settings” i.e. “About phone”. Tap it and you are through to ” System Updates”. Tap “system Updates” and you would get updates. the update is of 1.2 GB aprox. Ensure your phone battery doesn’t get discharged in between. After the updates are downloaded the phone starts to install them. It tok around 15-20 mins for my phone to get updated to Android 5.0.2 from Android KitKat 4.4.4.
