@rohkostmett That's indeed literally what I had to end up doing.
Download update on laptop => transfer to USB => Boot PS in to recovery mode => Update PS => Yay interwebs works now...
Insanity, if you ask me!
@rohkostmett PS4, in my case.
Note, this is after moving house, and some power interruptions to my playstation. Which may have interfered with the update process.
None the less, the circular instructions are utterly stupid.
