Re: update

Maybe Sony doesn't offer it? Then ask Sony why they don't.
Maybe your provider (say Verizon), if you bought a subsidised phone, doesn't offer it. Then ask them why.

You don't tell how you tried to update and why it didn't work. That ,makes it rather impossible to do any suggestion than: have a look at xda-developers to see if there's help there.

Kees covered almost all of it. But why do this? We have a few versions at the office and lollipop adoption is still in the single digits so your apps aren't leveraging it yet.

Tell more and if you must, XDA Developers.
