How long does the gingerbread update take?

I received the notification for the update this morning.  I plugged my phone in a started the update.  5 1/2 hours later, it's still updating.  There is a triangle with an exclamation point in it on the screen along with the little green android character.  Is this normal?

I would not expect it to take that long, most android system updates install in 5 - 20 minutes after it had been downloaded. if you don't get past this by simply removing /replacing the battery then follow the steps outlined here.

Well, that took care of it.  Thanks you!  Now everything is working fine.  I did have to reboot it, but the update was in place.
