All I wanted to do was play some games, so I turned on the Xbox and it had an update, I accepted and it downloaded. For some reason, it said it couldn't continue at some point due to a network problem. Now I can't sign into XBL. Its not my internet connection since I just posted this and not my subscription because I was online earlier in the day, plus I renewed in September.

So all I want to know is how to fix this, it seems the update worked since I have the new dashboard but I am unable to connect to XBL. Is everything down due to system congestion or is my Xbox completely fucked now?

It's not the update. It's the network. Live is screwed up right now for almost everybody, not just those who downloaded the update.

Everything is down due to system congestion, your Xbox is not completely fucked. I haven't even been able to update because I can't sign into Xbox Live.

Servers are getting hammered. It'll be fixed within a day or two, if not hours. Twitter is exploding with rage over this, and it's not an issue. Be cool about it. Running an infrastructure like this is not easy, and it's not really worth getting worked up over. Plus, if it actually DOES get out of hand, like it did Christmas of 07, then they'll do right by subscribers, like they did back then.

Yep. I don't have the update and I can't connect. My net is working and everything.

Just give it some time. Unfortunate, but everything is overloaded. I tried a couple of times and was finally able to get it to work across several Xboxs. I had the thing where I couldn't sign my profile in either. Just wait and then try again later.
