Sorry really have no ideas when it comes to LG. Please bear with my noob questions.

Well the update to kit Kat actually came pretty quickly so that gets thumbs up from me.
Problem is LG release an update then that is shipped to your carrier who then has to test it and then release to it a customers and that is what takes the time.
This means that when LG release the update to when you actually get it can take many months and sometimes you never get it.
None if this applies to carrier free or rooted phones.
