Do not use OTA. Upgrading is optional as the jailbreak will cover all of 6.x.

But on the server issue, it is possible apple is slammed with people updating. As @markhack said, try again later.

Do not update OTA if you're planning to jailbreak. Wait a few days. As spockers said "the apple server will be unavailable until all 3GS's are accidentally updated.
