There are several things that could have caused the phone to have gone off midway through the update process.
Some of these factors include low battery and low memory space. This and many other things could have caused the phone to go off.
In summary, there is a very low chance that the phone might be able to work again but it is best if you have a back up of all your files on your computer or some other storage device. There are three things that can be done to try to revive your phone.
First of all, you can try to connect the phone to a computer or try to perform a hard reset on the phone and see if that helps to restore the phone to its normal operating firmware.
On the other hand, to avoid any form of further damage, it is best advised that you see a nokia care center expert and see what they can do for you. They might offer to change it for you or to repair it for a small fee if it is possible.
Lastly, you can take it to a phones dealer who would swap it for you with a newer model.
Hope this was helpful? Please comment for more information and thank you for using FixYa.

    Ok then. I'm sorry for your loss but just try to stay calm and not tamper with the phone anymore as it could worsen issues.

Nokia default master security code is 12345. If this has changed, the only option is to reload the firmware (Nokia Software Update tool) or send to Nokia Service Centre to reload firmware (warrantable if purchased less than 12 months ago).
