Perform Xbox One Offline Update
Microsoft’s Xbox One offline update involves downloading a file to a USB flash drive and then installing that file directly unto your console. But before you get started, you’ll need a windows PC and a USB stick formatted as NTFS with a minimum of 6GB of space.
Once you have met the prerequisites, simply plug your flash drive into the USB port on your computer and then click here to download the latest system update.
Once done, extract the content in the OSUI zip file and move the file in the $SystemUpdate folder to the root directly of your flash drive, then unplug it from your computer.
Now ensuring that your console is powered off, simply hold the Bind button plus the Eject button and then press the Power button once.
Continue holding the Bind and Eject button until you hear the second power-up tone. That’s it, you can now release both buttons and you’ll see the Xbox Startup Troubleshooter screen.
Now plug the USB flash drive containing the system update file you downloaded into the USB port on your Xbox one. Next use the D-pad on your controller to select the Offline system update option on the Troubleshoot window and then press A to initiate the installation.
Once the update is complete, your Xbox one will restart and you should be returned to the home screen.
