PlayStation 5: How To Install The Update

As soon as you start your PS5, the new update should show up in the downloads section. Once it's downloaded, all you have to do is click on the notification and restart the system. If the update doesn't show up in downloads, you need to go into the settings. There you'll find the item System Software by System. Go to System Software Update and Settings and click on Update System Software. The PlayStation will then search for the latest update and add it to downloads.
