A 'software update' was downloaded to my Cricket Wireless SG5 Sept 2016 and wants me to Install it. It doesn't say what it is, where it's from, or give any clue as to what it's for. I texted Cricket about this with no response. Is this legitimate?

Sounds like the same notification I get for OS updates that happen about once every couple of months or so. Also it could be related to this update: https://www.cricketwireless.com/support/devices-and-accessories/cell-phone-software-updates/customer/gs5-lollipop-update.html

I don't see a date on the Cricket site for that update notice.

If it's a notification and it states software update. I'd be willing to bet it's legit and from your carrier.
