Question about Sony PlayStation 3 40GB System
To do a system update on ps3, create an new user and do the download from another country. I had this problem for the longest time, so that's what I did. I'm in the US and ended up doing the update from Australia on the first try. I attempted to go back on my normal user name and tried the updates from the US from time to time, and sometimes they work and when they don't I use the other user. There isn't a problem with the PS3, it's the Playstation servers (where Sony stores their information like updates, and connecting to play on line gaming). I hope this helps and good luck!

Update it via storage media. Do that by going to the playstation website and put your flash drive in. After that, create a folder and name it "PS3" and then create a folder and name it "UPDATE" and put that folder in "PS3" There is a button on the website that downloads update data. When that is done, put that data in the "UPDATE" folder. Then put the flash drive into the Playstation 3 and go to "system update" and chose update via storage media
