My Sony Xperia Tablet Z LTE has been running with Android KitKat 4.4.4 for quite a while now.

For a couple of weeks now I got the notification, that a new software update is available, which would install Android Lollipop (5.0) on the device.

Could not install new software version. Try again.
I did try again. Several times. Same problem.
Eventually I came across a good hint in the Sony Mobile forums, where "PCC" was mentioned. PCC is short for Sony PC Companion, a software installed on your computer to manage your Sony device (similar to Samsung's Kies).
Finally with PCC I was able to install the software update on the device, without any issues.
My Sony tablet is now running with the following versions:
