You have to go to back to full stock mk2 to be able to update. If you want to keep root you can use the guide in the general section on how to keep root and update. The guide works for the leaked KitKat build we got, nc2, but I'm not sure if it works for the official nc5 update, you can check the thread for that.

Since you're not on the Verizon network, you won't be offered the update via OTA. I'd wait until someone grabs the NC5 update
Since you're factory stock, you could install the OTA by downloading it to your internal SD card as an update.zip and booting into stock recovery to install it.

Note that you can't "play around" with it. You'll have NC5, no root, and very likely no way to go back.

I had an idea not being on the network may be the reason behind it. I will give going through the stock recovery a shot. Also, I am very sad to say this is my first phone I have not messed around with.

The update comes from VZ over their network. If you're not on their network, the update servers aren't reachable.
Oh - another thing you can try is to use Kies to check for updates. I don't think that VZ has made the update available there yet, so have patience.

Thanks for the help! I will check out Kies too. I have nothing but time on my hands so patience comes easy.
