Hello there and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I am an engineer with over 30 years of electrical and electronic training, repair and installation experience. I will try and answer your question accurately and precisely so that we can get you on your way.
I need to gather some more information from you in order to help.
Can you tell me the first four characters of the Kindle's serial number? This may be on the back of the Kindle.Then we can continue.
On early Kindles, it is on the back of the Kiindle. If not, Go to Settings and then Device Info.
Ok, that is a Kindle Fire. It does not require the update. Only black and white screen Kindles made prior to 2012 require the critical update.
On your Kindle Fire, updates are pushed to the Kindle automatically. You don't have to do anything.
Please let me know if you need further help.
I'll be here for another hour or so.
