    My 3DS doesn't seem to ever get the update nag and when I try to update it fails at about 20%. I'm currently on 11.2 and I need 11.4 for the new Fire Emblem to boot. I have the latest Luma as of Boot9Strap and Boot9Strap on my system.

    Make sure your DNS setting for your internet configuration is set to "auto"

    Also try a phone hot spot if you haven't already

    The DNS settings were not set to auto and I changed them, but it still fails to update. I get "An error has occurred. Unable to update. The system will now be restarted.".

    Odd, I got it from FreeShop, maybe it's missing the ticket regardless.

    I don't have mobile data, but I can use the WiFi driven hotspot off my laptop which should have the same effect in terms of configuration on the 3DS end.
