Your console had a problem during the update process. Carefully follow these steps:

Remove any disc from the console.

Leave the disc tray open.

With the disc tray open, remove the power cord from the back of the console.

Plug the power cord back into the console. Do not turn the console on yet.

Gently push the disc tray about half-way back into the console.

Push the power button on the console.

Important: Do not use the controller button or the disc tray eject button to turn on the console for this step.

The update should now continue. If the above steps do not work, the console might need to be repaired. This worked for me, I hope this helps you.

This usually happens when the Xbox does not have enough space to save the update to in order to install it. Make sure you clear out enough space so you are able to properly install the update.

Here is a list of other errors that can happen to system updates.
Contact back with the code you get if you cannot fix it using Microsoft's tips and I will try to help.

Status code 416B-0000-3080-0508-8007-2F76 appears when updating

The first thing I would try is to go to system, storage then select hard drive, press left bumper, right bumper, then X, do this twice and then yes to update. This deletes the old update and tries to replace it with the new update. If this fails there is an alternative method - You first need a flash drive/memory stick that has got FAT32 file system (just in case you don't how to find out this info) with drive inserted to laptop/pc go into windows explorer and right click on the memory stick and go to properties you can then view the system type i.e. NTFS, FAT32.

Once sorted go to the Xbox Support website then select Xbox360 - System - System Update then select How To Get A New Xbox 360 Update last option to pick is Copy To A USB Flash Drive.

Save the file to your laptop/PC, once completed unzip the file and copy the folder to the flash drive how it was unzipped, plug the flash drive into the Xbox and switch it off. Once the 360 starts back up it looks at the flash drive and installs the new update. Once completed you can remove the flash drive and carry on playing!!

My xbox 360 was updating and it stoped and froze, its says my system update failed status code 3151-351f-b380-0402-c000-0001

According to the Xbox Support page, you should contact Microsoft about this error.
Other than that, I would suggest trying to update using different methods. If the problem occurred while updating from Live, try putting the update on a disk or flash drive. Here is a link to the update page where you can find the downloads for disk and flash drive.
Good luck.

Your Hard Drive/Memory Card is failing, You must replace your hard drive. the reason why its running slow is because your hard drive is not sending its info fast enough which causes to slow your system down.

in order to clear that update code you must disconnect every memory unite you currently have, get a USB drive and got to and download the latest update files. Insert your USB and your system should accept the update.

Your system is not accepting your DVD drive firmware, either your DVD has been modified before or your drive got curropted when updating. if your system has been modified before then you must restore your drive back to stock and reupdate. if your system has never been modded before then you will need a new drive.
