It has only been a few weeks since Android 5.1 was introduced to the public and pushed to select devices, but software updates wait for nothing. There is always something to be fixed, changed, or added. The next version of Android, 5.1.1, could be released soon as it has been spotted in the Android SDK Manager. It has not yet been added to AOSP, so hold off on continuously checking for a software update.

We will let you know when Android 5.1.1 starts hitting Nexus devices.
