SOURCE: xbox 360 update problems
If the above suggestion does not work, which i think should, try to delete cache on Xbox 360 console. Firstly, go to System tab, then go to Memory, then, highlight HDD (DONT CLICK) and press Y. Enter x, x, left bumper, right bumper, x and x . Sorry, but this does not always work, if it dows, when the tab appears that asks if you want to perform maintenance, click yes

I finally found out how to fix this! go to this website :http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/4801064/XBOX_360_Update_Files and download the torrent. Follow the directions from the second page of this forum: http://360mods.net/index.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=9796 . all you have to do is copy the $systemupdate folder that you need onto a usb drive and plug it into the 360 then turn on your 360. you can find out what number update you need by the number at the botom of the screen or if your like me and dont have those numbers youll have to go back and forth untill it boots up to the right update. make sure your flash drive is cleared out except the $systemupdate folder. go one at a time until it boots up with that update file.

I had change of heart, the guys over at 360mods prevailed on me to release this for free.
So for all to see , here is how you fix the update failed error in all cases:
The error seems to happen when the 360 is unable to read from the update source during the update. The only time I have actually seen it occur was when updating from a backup, which is a common cause Ive read about. The other common cause is an onset of RROD during the update. Im not sure what causes the hard drive error. Either way, the solution is simply to supply the 360 with the correct update file either on a CD or a USB stick. Now here's the rub, it has to be the exact same update file as the one that failed. Not a problem since I've made a nice torrent file with all of the updates to date here:
The version number is shown at the bottom of the error screen. PV is for previous version and CV for current version. Just put the file matching the current version (the one you are updating to) on a USB stick, (i.e. E:/$SystemUpdate) put it in your 360, and power up. If you have the right one it will finish updating and boot to the dashboard. Voila.
This has worked for me on 7 consoles so far. 3 of them said they couldn't detect the hard drive and the other four the update disc, so this seems to work in all cases. I hope this can help some people out.

You may have started to download the update and
have an incomplete file transfer stuck on your hard drive. Go to the
"My XBOX" row where your game would launch or your avatar hangs out
and go all the way to the right to the settings or preference screen. Select
(highlight it, don't press A and enter it) the hard drive or memory stick where
you have downloaded updates before and you should notice that at the bottom of
the screen you have A for select, B for Back and then the Y (yellow) for clear
system cache. press Y (If you have tons of demos and **** that your kids
can't go without (oops, that is me) back up the important ones just in case and
scroll through and look under "system updates" and see if you can see
one that has the yellow triangle with the ! in the center. If you find
that right away, just delete it and exit out to then press Y for clearing the
cache. Get any USB flash stick or the last time I think I used my little
digital camera with the micro SD chip and a USB cable and go to:
select the option for download your update to
USB or disk if you have that option. Save the update as the guide tells
you and then install it through the USB port instead of XBOX Live.
If that failed me, I would remove my hard drive
and wireless/Ethernet connection to where the avatars and all personalized info
no longer shows up and return back to the "settings" window and do
the initial set up, power down and replace your hard drive/storage. Just
to make sure that you aren't being firewalled or blocked by a new update or something, try to connect to like
the media player or go to "network settings" window and watch to see
if that green bar goes from the Xbox, through the router and lights up the Xbox
live icon. Updates or not, you should still be able to see that you have
the resources to make the connection.
Hope I helped but my kids are waiting for me to
solve the "I didn't mean to stick the Tech Deck into the USB ports and
short out the whole media center" problem here- so hope that I am not to
One last thing, if you have low storage for the
update and that is why the download isn't happening, you can always re-download
what you delete or move some of the larger saved games to a flash stick until
you are up and running again. Don't
forget that you can connect the XBOX to your PC and then just have the
troubleshooter from the above link run an automated "what the heck is wrong"
Good luck to you.
problems getting the update? Look for solutions below.
The update through Xbox LIVE fails part way through
Try using the simplest connection possible:
If you have a wired connection: Temporarily unplug
everything from your router, except the cable to your modem and the cable to
your Xbox 360 console.
If you have a wireless connection: Temporarily turn off everything that's connected to your wireless network except your Xbox 360 console.
Now connect to Xbox LIVE and try updating your console software again.
If you're using a wireless connection, try switching to a wired
connection. To do this, plug one end of a network cable into the back of your
console, and the other end into a port on your router or gateway. Now connect
to Xbox LIVE and try updating your console software again.
Follow the directions above to copy the update to a USB flash
drive or to burn a CD or DVD.
