does not update anything until all downloads are completed.  It seems
you stopped it before that point.  So this seems to be a problem with
booting in general.

And it sounds from your description like you have a corrupted hard
drive.  There should be a way to check that from the rescue disk.
Maybe someone else can help you with that or you can do a search.
