Well, they said they deactivated the "update via USB" feature back in 3.XX but i still don't understand...
However, you should still be able to update via USB devices (i'm using my 120GB iPod Classic to update since its HDD to HDD = fast transfer lol)
if you still can't try in the PS3's Safe Mode (press and hold the power button + Eject button *power, then eject.. not both at the same time* and wait for the first beep.. then the 2nd and let go of the buttons... it should boot into this:
Well, i can see you're using a old fat console so that could be the problem (idk, don't ask me... anything is possible lol) OR it's the USB device you're using (you didn't show what you were using to update)
Anyways, i used to have a 2GB usb drive that works perfectly with my laptop.. but when i plug it in to x360 it doesn't show up.. reason ? because the lousy quality USB stick is from some obscure company that stopped making that model after awhile..
PS: also, don't ever buy USB sticks that look like this.
