You can update Nokia E72 Firmware either by FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) or Nokia’s Software Updater application to update your E72 to v31.023.

Although the E72 supports UDP or  User Data Preservation, its highly recommended that you take a backup of your Phone Data before proceeding with the firmware update.

If your device doesnt detect any new firmware, then you will have to wait a little bit longer since, it might have not reached your region product code yet. The Firmware will eventually roll out to all the product codes.
