Please allow additional time for the apps on your device to continue to download after the software update.

To get ready for the very important update, you need to download the Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor.   The update won’t be a standard Phone Update check as it’s going through that app. After you get the official update you will need to check the Upgrade Advisor app again for another over-the-air update as the Lumia Icon should go right to build 10586.420, but it will upgrade to the May Update, 10586.318, before that.
