Learn about iOS 4: Updating your device to iOS 5 or later

HT4972 When I try to update iOS 5 on my iPod, it keeps telling me that "the software update server could not be contacted".  I keep doing what it tells me to, but it still doesn't work.  Any ideas on how to help?

When I try to update my iPod to iOS 5, the computer tells me that it can't connect to the update server.  I've been trying for months to update it, and it just won't!  I am connected to the internet, so does anyone have any idea on how I can figure this out?  It would be extremely helpful. 

iPod touch (4th generation), iOS 4.3.3
