I am currently trying to update Burnout: Paradise City on my PS3 via the automatic update service, but I constantly have the following error: The system prompts me upon startup that I must update the Burnout software, it then cycles my video settings, quirk of my 42" 1080p LCD I would imagine, then tries to initiate a download. The screen promtply goes blank, the PS3 stays on, the controls do not respond such that I can see anything on screen, and it does not go away. I left it like this for three hours. It is connected to the internet through a wireless network but can update system software perfectly. I noticed this issue a while back with Rock Band, but it went away the next time I connected my console to the internet, no idea how. Any assistance is greatly appreciated and rewarded with candy*.

I have just recently purchased my PS3 but what the problem sounds like is a link failure. I work on computers for a living and have seen this problem alot when the link wasn't fully developed or is missing critical information. I would try surfing the internet with your PS3 and going to the games web site to get the download or some other 3rd party website and try downloading it and installing it that way. You can find almost anything with a serach engine, so if you don't know a direct website then try that.
If that doesn't work ask some of your friends if they have ever updated that game, because I have noticed that after some of the PS3's firmware updates some older games will not update because a conflict in information.
hope that helps!!
p.s. my favorite candy is reeces lol

Error code "8002F997" means your PS3 is having issues updating your system software directly via internet. As a workaround you'll use external storage media, such as a USB thumb drive, to transfer the software to your PS3
- A USB cable (not necessary if using a USB thumb drive) - A PC with Internet access - Storage media or a USB Mass Storage device such as a USB flash drive
2. Downloading and saving the software
- Plug in your USB drive to your computer, and create a folder on the storage media in which to save the update data. Create a folder named "PS3" on the storage media/USB
device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named "UPDATE".
I received this today and first I downloaded the update via the web on your computer to a USB flash drive. Once downloaded create the folders PS3 and the folder UPDATE within PS3. PS3\UPDATE. Move downloaded file into the UPDATE folder. (folders must be in CAPS). Then when the unit is off press and hold the power button until it beeps 3 times. A menu should come up on the screen. Select the option that states update system software (I believe its 6). The unit will update via the flash drive. After that the unit will restart and should be updated and working.
Okay, I figured it out myself, if anyone has this problem, with the new update you should get dynamic weather and bikes with day-to-night play. If not, for me it didn't get the update all the way, so I had to re-download update v1.7. To make sure you have the update, when you start the game it should have "Burnout Paradise" in a blue logo type, before the update it was red, and you will have the choice to change from cars to bikes.
Create a folder on the storage media in which to save the update data. Using a PC, create a folder named “PS3” on the storage media or USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named “UPDATE”.
Download the update data and save it in the UPDATE folder created in step 1.
Be sure to save the update data as noted below. If the data is not saved in the correct way, the PS3™ system will not recognize the update data. The folder name must be in all uppercase letters.
Location: Save in the “PS3” folder > “UPDATE” folder
File name: Save as file name “PS3UPDAT.PUP”.
Do not turn off the PS3™ system or remove the storage media or USB device during an update. If an update is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged, and the system may require servicing or exchange.
The power button on the PS3™ system front is not active during an update.
Insert the storage media or USB device that contains the update data in the PS3™ system.
From the home menu, select (Settings) > (System Update), and then press the button.
Select [Update via Storage Media], and then press the button.
The system automatically searches for and finds the update data saved on the storage media or USB device.
Start the update data.
Press the button to start the update data. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the update.
Confirm that the update was successful. After the update has been completed, go to (Settings) > (System Settings) > [System Information]. If the System Software field displays the version number of the update, the update was successful.
