    Hi Joseff - welcome to the forum! :)

    Let's just start w/ some simple suggestions - please go into your 'Settings' -> 'General' -> 'About' to see if you still have iOS 5.x on your iPad; then, 'Reset' your device - Directions HERE. After the reset, try the download again - please post back your results - good luck!

    No. You can only update to the current version.


    Maybe try updating through iTunes, rather than OTA.

    If you've tried OTA and iTunes on the same network, I'd suspect the router. Could be worth giving it a reboot.
