macOS updates may take a while to install so be patient while things are going forward. Please make sure that you have saved all of your work ahead of time before installing the update. You can postpone the update to install later, if you wish. But if macOS Big Sur is installed on a computer that is your daily driver then it is recommended that you install the update right away.

macOS Big Sur is a huge update for the Mac as it marks the transition from Intel to Apple Silicon, the company's in-house chip efforts. The new OS update has more in common with iOS but retains the look and feel of a desktop operating system from start to finish. So far, the reaction to Big Sur has been a mixed bag from the community, but those who were slowly moving away from the Mac over the year will definitely find this update a breath of fresh air.
