    You should be able to reboot your device by simultaneously pressing both the power and home buttons until you see the Apple logo. The update *should* continue where it left off.

    It did but now it's downloading but there is no status bar nor time remaining showing. I have never seen a update do this. Is this normal?

    Not in my experience. If you're updating OTA (over the air), it could take a while depending on your internet connection and the same applies via iTunes. You might consider downloading the .ipsw file for the latest iOS version and install it manually via iTunes.
