What firmware version is it currently running?

You can find this information by going to settings, about phone

I wrote a workaround for this problem that should solve the upgrade issue. Just to confirm, do you have the S2 or the S2x? The reason I ask, is that the software upgrade differs greatly between the S2 and the S2x.

The link below is the workaround article I wrote a few months back.

The latest Odin versions (ODIN v3.07, v3.06, v3.04, v1.85, v1.83) can be found at the link below. Odin version 1.85 works best and is compatible with the S2x.

Ok, then it's just a matter of downloading Odin and then downloading the firmware for your S2x from SamMobile. (You'll have to register with SamMobile, but it's a quick and simple process). The flashing instructions are in the workaround link above. If you run into any problems let us know.

I had the same problem when I tried to upgrade in fact I tried for a week with kies and had the same thing . Just for giggles I tried to do it on my daughters computer and alas I had no problem.So for some reason kies did not like my computer. If you have a second computer I suggest you try that it worked well for me
