Quest 2 not updating?

Honored Guest

Vr headset apparently had an update, white chip with an arrow pointing downwards as a green bar showed the loading progress, once it goes through it sends me to the blue meta logo, it fades in and out constantly and ive waited up to two days for it to load, ive went through all trouble shooting steps including power off, factory reset, and boot, none of these work and sends be back to the beginning of the problematic update; I do not know what to do and I need help, I don’t have money for a replacement and Im in desperate need of assistance to get the headset working again.
