M4002 RCA Opal says it is now playing, but doesn't move forward

Many updates end up deleting all songs off your player as a side effect - try reloading your songs onto the Opal and see if they will play after that.

Also, make sure the hold/lock switch wasn't accidentally activated.

Another possibility is that one of the updates made a change to which DRM licenses the player is compatible with. If you have songs with an older DRM-9 license, they may not be usable after the update. which music service do you get your songs from? If it is a licensing issue, then I would try loading only songs that are in mp3 format - they will never give you funky issues.
