  1. Clear Xbox Hard Drive Cache . From the Dashboard, go to the System menu, select “Memory” and then “Hard Drive”. Press the Y button and choose “Clear Cache”.
  2. Clear failed updates from cache. Turn off the Xbox 360. While holding down the Sync button next to the memory unit slots, turn on the Xbox. This will clear the download queue and restart failed downloads.
  3. Check that the problem is not with your router . If you use a router, disconnect it by unplugging your Xbox from the router and plugging it directly into your modem. Try to update and check if it has completed successfully. If so, reconnect to the router. You may need to check your router and its settings.
