Nope. All standard.
Fascinating.
Only other factor I can think of that could cause that kind of message is the  Watch's connectivity status, if everything seems good on the phone.
Frankly it seems like an odd bug. I'd say probably just wait it out a bit. iOS 13 and watchOS 6 is coming soon. Hopefully when you upgrade your phone to iOS 13, the watchOS updating process will be fixed so you can get it to OS 6 as well. If that update doesn't help, I'd contact Apple about this one. I can't really think of any good things to try out here. And the error message that you get isn't exactly helpful if network connection isn't an issue

A very dumb but obvious question. Is WiFi turned on through your phone?

Thanks for your help. Only reason I tried updating today is that I have been getting horrendous battery life over the past 2 days. Watch drained by 3pm in the afternoon and phone was down to 25% by the same time (I’m usually still around 80-90% as I don’t use my phone during working hours).

I would try the illogical and remove all 3rd party apps from your watch and try again. Sounds crazy but your battery drain and connectivity issues could be related to an app
