There are quick ways by which you can solve the installation error. Sometimes, the battery dies during the update, for preventing that make sure that your phone is 100% charged and then update your phone. The other thing that interrupts installation process is, clearing your device’s cache portion, just to give the installation a jump-start. This is how you can do that:

  • Press and hold the Power and Volume Down button simultaneously until you don’t see anything other than Google on the screen.
  • A large arrow at the top of the screen will be visible.
  • Search for the Recovery option, by navigating through Volume down arrow and select it by Power button.
  • An Android with his chest open will appear showing red triangle and exclamation mark.
  • Now, press the Power button and tap on the Volume Up button and then release the Power button.
  • A listicle of items will appear on top of the screen.
  • Browse by Volume Down button for “erase or wipe the cache portion” and select it with power button.
  • It will pop up a status message on top of the screen, this may take 10-15 minutes to complete. Reboot the device once it is completed.

If any of these doesn’t work, you have to implicitly factory reset your phone, this is not the ideal way but you are left with no other option.
