There are a few things you can try; Clearing your cache, you can download the update on your PC through and the transfer it using a USB thumb drive. If that still doesn't work, I'd try contacting xbox support, they might have a solution for this issue by now.

My xbox 360 keeps saying update failed n i cant get on my xbox page i have no screen 2 get on my sign in or front page it only shows update failed

With the console off hold down the sync button. Continue holding the sync button and power the unit on. Holding the sync button should clear the failed update and allow you to boot to your dashboard.

I am unable to sign into to my live account?

Have you clicked test connection and have it tell you why it cant connect?? If it cant connect to the xbox Live and its not a connection problem, Live might be down, you could be banned, there may be an update you need. Most of the time you cant connect there may be a temporary maintenance for live. If you still cant connect call xbox customer support and ask about your account.
