    You will have to give more information as to what you are doing and how you getting the error.

    Which method are you using to update your phone?

    I take it you mean when updating from the OTA function on the phone? (Menu > Settings > About Phone > Software Update)

    Some networks provide OTA update function but some networks don't. If you cannot update software using OTA then you will have to check using Kies.
    Type in Google 'Samsung Kies' and then downlaod the software.

    This is what I meant by which method are you using to update.

    Yup, in all isntances as far as I am aware. If you are able to use the OTA function then you will need to create an account with Samsung, effectively registering your product. You then use the login details registered with Samsung to access the OTA function.
