What are you asking?

What is an OTA?
What is unbranded?

An OTA is "over the air" and is a way for your firmware to be updated.

Unbranded means your phone was not associated with any particular network or carrier - basically meaning it was brought "sim free".

It depends where you are situated, different regions have got different updates that fix different things, most fixes are things relating to radio and cell tower connections.

Vodafone branded devices had an update that fixed something specifically for their network.

the 43mb update seems most common and suggests that there was nothing on your device that really needed fixing beyond whatever the "power optimisation" is that they have done.
