So here i am, after a week i decide to turn on my ps3, a new update i see.. well i'll just download it & play some games for a few hours. right? Nope...
Well.. as usual with sony, they fail at even bringing out a update we can actually download.
I've tried 10+ times to download this update but i get to 1% and i get a error.
Is there a solution to fix this error?
And have sony said anything about it yet? Knowing them, they'll leave us in the dark for a few days.

Are you updating from the previous official 4.21 FW or the dodgy custom 4.23 FW?
A lot of people who thought it was a good idea to install custom FW seem to be having problems.
If you are updating from the previous official 4.21 FW might be worth rebooting your router or running a wired connection to your PS3.

They don't seem to have failed, everyone i know has completed it fine. Maybe its you?
Sure there is a solution, let me just mindread what error you are specifically getting and i'll post that right to you >.>
fi8767 - how can you lie so blatantly? You have replied to threads who are having the same issue as the OP. So, not "everyone" you know has "completed it fine".
I don't want to cause an argument here, but it's obvious to everyone that there is an issue with this update. It might not affect everyone, but nor does the flu, or a cold.
There is no way on earth that all the people who are posting are unlucky enough to have their systems die on the same day, in the same way at pretty much the same time without there being a common factor.
The common factor here.... the update. The sooner SONY get back to people with what's happening the better. Something like this just before Christmas could damage their sales no end.

Yes I also see many posts from people having this same problem. Not just here.
Every firmware update is a risk with any device , but it seems with the PS3 it even riskier. Like I already said a possible solution is to disconnect the Harddrive just after the update process starts which should end the loop. Of course this isnt a very safe method and you do it at your own risk. Maybe a better solution comes along.
