Just make sure to keep on checking by hitting your device settings. From Home screen > Apps > About phone > Check for updates. You may also use the Software upgrade assistant.

If it just keeps saying like "Service unavailable software update is temporarily unavailable. Try again later" then you must wait until the OTA server is not overly saturated.
