My issue was purely my own fault. I did the update without fallowing the written instructions. I had the same issue with my variax with their last update. I just downloaded the update and ran it.
When I got the error on the helix I had to install the update a few times before it worked. I restarted it multiple times and put it in recovery mode (I think that's what it's called) multiple times before it finally worked. Again for me I knew it was my fault for not fallowing the update instructions. Maybe the update has an issue and maybe it doesn't I don't really know. Ii know your upset and believe me I would be as well. 'd suggest sleeping on it then try again in the morning.
