    It sounds like the update was one write too many to the eMMC in the MCU, maybe?
    Flash has a finite life span, and from what I understand older versions of the Tesla software generated a ton of log files. I don't think current versions are so write-heavy.

    What’s the cost of the replacement MCU on that era of S? Maybe I should start saving :p

    I had a similar issue, update caused a complete systems meltdown, just needed a system rebuild at the Service Centre and all is golden again.
