Stuck on the Xbox One Green screen after installing an update, hold the power button on the front of the console for 10 seconds. Once it shuts off, unplug it, wait 30 seconds, then plug it back in, and try the update again. If this doesn’t work, and you’re stuck on the green screen for 10+ minutes, you’ll need to use the Offline System Update Diagnostic tool. Users that see a black screen, and it lasts for 10+ minutes, also need to run this tool.
