How are you connected to the internet? It needs to be over a data connection, not Wi-Fi. –  Matthew Read Oct 24 '11 at 14:12
    
Seconded - I've tried over a data connection as well as WiFi. Same error. Hoping for an update for India from the current 2.3.3 –  Sparx Oct 24 '11 at 14:15
    
@MatthewRead Yes its over data connection only –  emaillenin Oct 25 '11 at 4:01

Galaxy S2 doesn't support OTA updates...so it's unlikely that you will be able to check for updates from your phone. The same "Connection Failed" error comes to me when I try that in my phone.

then what are the other ways to update the phone software? –  emaillenin Oct 26 '11 at 6:34

@emaillenin download Kies for your computer and connect the phone via USB, it should prompt you for updating. –  Oak Nov 2 '11 at 10:00
