So last night I pulled out my 3ds for the first time in over a month and was told a system update was available. So, I performed the system update then proceded to connect to the eshop at which point I got a black screen telling me an error had occurred and to restart the system and try again. After a dozen attempts I gave up. Now I went to the internet and did learn about problems end of 2013, or I heard mention of receiving error messages with an error code, but noting along the line of what I experienced.
Has this happened to anyone else?
