Samsung started rolling out the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware on the international variant of the Galaxy Note 5, however, the update is currently rolling out in stages, this means that some of the users might not get the update on time. This is the common practise with several OEMs these days and considering how some updates are region/carrier specific, it is understandable.
The update has the build number XXU1COH4, and offers a better overall performance and some bug fixes that weren’t present in the previous updates. Currently, the update is rolling out in France and Italy via KIES and via OTA. However, if you are not from the patient lot, you can manually update your phone using Odin. The updating process is rather easy and anyone who’s been in the Android world can do it, however, some people are still relying over guides to help streamline the entire process.
