Like always, such updates spread across in phases, and it might take some time to arrive in your area. Or you could find the firmware from the internet and flash it using Odin. Moreover, before downloading and starting the installation process for the update, make sure you have at least 50% or more battery�on your phone, or else the installation might fail due to battery discharge which happens at a quicker rate, during installation of firmware.

It is always recommended to download such updates via WiFi to avoid any extra data charges. Samsung has been recently doing a decent job when it comes to security updates, for not only flagship devices but also for its budget phones as well.
