It worked for me at the first try itself. I followed the steps mentioned and when i checked the system update option, i didn't get the update. I switched off and on the phone. And voila !!! I got the update notfication immediately.
Thank you ! :)

Follow those steps twice. For second time you will get OTAManor, Google framework means Google +, there is no other apps by framework. Bhai make it more simple.
Found an awesome app. It's called unlimited screen recorder free. Works on lollipop with no root and no need to connect with a pc - even on first run. Finally a true screen recording app that works without having to go into sdk commands etc.

Mine took a long time as well. I think that is because it is changing from DALVIK to ART runtimes, and that takes ages.

No, the phone was just sitting there on standby when the screen suddenly woke up with the message 'Update Available' ( or something similar) and I clicked on download.
I'm disappointed that the 'Tap to Wake' function isn't available on the Nexus 5 but I suppose only the latest hardware can handle that. I do like the lockscreen notification that tells you how much longer it will take to charge your battery though.
My build No. is LRX210
