I have a Samsung Galaxy Note N7000. An Android update was promoted. I started with the update download, but canceled it at 36 MB (total update size:110 mb) because of slow network. After that, whenever I try downloading it, the download stops at the 36 Mb(exactly at 35.88 where I had previously canceled it).

Interestingly, it is the same case with app downloads also, from Google Play.

Device: Samsung galaxy note - GT-N7000. Android version: 4.0.3

What happens when an app size is less than 35.88 Mb? – Evil Angel Aug 14 '12 at 20:26
It happens only for the apps/Android update which I manually canceled when the download is in progress. For example, I'm canceling app1 in the middle. I'll be able to download any other app and install. But when I try to download app1 again, download stops at the same point, where I had canceled during the earlier installation attempt. – Praveen Aug 15 '12 at 3:30
Wow.. interesting problem.. Have you reported this to Google? – Evil Angel Aug 15 '12 at 5:15
Not yet. Just wanted to see if any one else out there with the same problem(and of course, any solution). – Praveen Aug 15 '12 at 17:06

Try deleting the temporary file that is 36Mb in size and re-start the download again this time.

Please include the method in how you're downloading the update - if you are using Kies, be sure to exit Kies first completely, then look for that temporary file (it will be in a hidden spot within the temporary directory under Windows - not sure of the path C:\Documents And Settings\Users\XXXX\Local Data ** OR ** C:\Documents and Settings\Users\XXXX\Application Data or similar)

You can easily find that out by searching for it depending on where the Windows Environment Variabel $TEMP points to.

I am trying to update via FOTA. I am not using Kies. I have searched for any temp file with a nearly equal size(when my download was cancelled) in my phone, but couldn't find one. – Praveen Aug 24 '12 at 9:17
The issue is solved now. I was able to update using FOTA now. (I haven't changed anything materially in my phone.) – Praveen Aug 30 '12 at 13:50
