First Failed Update Since 2015...I Guess There's Always A First Time

I'm not exactly sure how this update went south but I've never had any problems on any update until now.

 

To be honest it very well could be a physical issue with my Helix since this is the Floor unit I use in my studio and it's been exhibiting some odd behaviors related to the USB and audio interface recently.  After updating and restoring my old presets, I rebooted and got a failed message and the Helix was in update mode.  I finally got it to boot by manually rebooting it a couple of times but it hung up during the rebuilding of the presets.

 

One thing that differs on this unit from my live performance Helix Floor is this one is powered on via Alexa which turns on the Helix as well as the studio monitors and some other items like my electronic piano and a desk lamp.  I re-did the update via Line 6 Central and got it working, but I'm not confident it's going to be stable yet.  I'll just manually power up and down the Helix individually and see where it takes me.

Alexa? Really? Count your blessings that Amazon isn't airlifting a pallet of guitar strings onto your front lawn every time you power up...;)
