Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
This issue caused major problems for me. I reformatted the drive/os twice and was about to put this in the trash as I could not update firmware nor get game updates. I went hard wire as well as wireless. I powered down everything overnite as some fixes suggested. I down loaded onto a USB thumb drive several times all failing to the grand 8002F997. All to no avail. I tried one last thing I hopped onto a local wi-fi that was free and not password protected. Bada Bing, firmware took, game updates took and I am downloading all the previous games I purchased online. Funny thing is that I do not have a problem playing online games on my network ?!?!?!?!

Download the firmware update to the USB drive again to ensure the firmware file is not corrupt. Try the installation of the firmware again. If all else fails, update firmware over the network.
