Before proceeding to download upgrade make sure that

You do have at least 1.5Gb of free space.

You need to be running Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 QFE8 or later

If you are on Windows 10 test builds, you may have to downgrade to Windows 8.1 using Windows Device Recovery tool

Do you own a phone which is not in the list mentioned above ? You may receive the update later, but if your device have only 512MB or less RAM, you have very less chance (or can say no chance) to get the Windows 10 mobile upgrade. The windows insider twitter account tweeted that “We do not have plans to put W10M on devices with 512 MB” because users with 512Mb RAM devices reported Windows 10 mobile experience didn’t meet expectations.
