A system software update can only be performed over a WiFi connection - or via direct connection to a PC (with iTunes installed) or a Mac (with iTunes or Finder - as appropriate for the installed version of macOS) that themselves have an internet connection.



A system software update can not be performed over a Cellular connection; an update to carrier settings will disrupt the [cellular] network connection during the update process.

What do you mean by a cellular update? You mean a carrier settings update? Or do you mean download an iOS software update over a cellular connection?



A carrier update, if available, should appear when you navigate to Settings > General > About.



If you mean something else, please elaborate.
