I'm an O2 2.1 (beta) user. Rather than 'check for update', I had to follow the direct link instead (it's on StreakSmart, and also Streak@Modoco), download the file into the root of the SD card, rename it to 'update.apk' using a file manager, and then shut down the phone and restart it, holding down both volume buttons simultaneously. No issues, it was a smooth update. But do make sure you have done the following first:

* Take a backup, preferably when rooted with Titanium or MyBackupPro
* Make a note of your google mail login. This is needed for your contacts, marketplace, and many other things. It took me hours to work out what it was (I never use googlemail, I only set it up for the phone, so I couldn't even remember the email address never mind the password).
* Make a note of your APKs, you may need to set up these to get 3G back. You can also find it via the web.
* Make sure you have your wifi password handy (I had to re-enter it)
* Download it via wifi (125mb or something like that, would kill many data allocations if you do it on 3G)

--- Edit:

Here's the relevant article from StreakSmart. Note however that I think it is 'update' not 'Update'.

OTA and package links for official Froyo update for O2-locked Dell Streak
