Hello Cathy,

Can you try going into the tv setup menu, under the network settings, and first check that it is connected to the internet/network.

If so, look for the Manual Setup (advanced setup) options in networking (after picking your wifi connection), and then under DNS change that to and let me know if you can update at that point.
