Drive disabled for software update

This is the message I got with my 2015 model S this morning when I wanted to use the car. I didnt initiate a software update and its now been like this for 2 hours. Im still on the original mmc. Pressing the two scrolls has no affect. Ive had the screen go black a few times requiring the reboot. Anyone seen this? Any other procedure to fix?

The drive is disabled when the software is being updated: That is expected. What is abnormal is you didn't initiate the update and it's not working after 2 hours.

Sounds like it's time for a new eMMC.
