Did you look at the manual?

If the Wii U console’s power LED does not turn on even
after pressing the Power Button, unplug the AC adapter
from the wall, wait two minutes, and plug it in again.
If the power LED is blinking red, unplug the AC adapter
from the wall. Make sure that the console is not in a location where it is exposed to high temperatures and that it has proper ventilation (at least 4”/10 cm). Wait about two
minutes, then plug the AC adapter back into the outlet
and turn the console power on.

Although it wasn't necessarily blinking, I did see a red light. I would unplug it for the 2 minutes and try again.

If you did it by losing power or cutting power to it during your update, you still might be good to go:

You should try leaving it like that for a couple hours.
This may be the case:

I did the AC adapter reset. I had it unplugged for 45 minutes, and for the entire last night, and other times, but it doesn't fix it.

I was downloading New Super Mario Bros. U.

I had my Wii plugged in to take out Super Smash Bros. Brawl, so I went to unplug my Wii which was tangled up with the Wii U and Wii U gamepad charger wires, and accidentally unplugged the Wii U.

Now it is bricked, I'm waiting for an admin at Nintendo to call me about it in two days from now.

My Nintendo Network ID was CREATER, too =(

that guy is wrong, if I push the power button, then it turns on for a little bit and then shuts off. An Nintendo customer service admin is going to call me within 2 days about this situation.

That blows, I would have traded you my wii-u deluxe but I returned mine for a refund. Mine was freezing too much... but I guess at least you could play on it?

Also you get to keep the name. All you do is sign in, iirc, as CREATER and it should load that profile.

Could have sworn there was a way to retrieve it... that really blows man. I can see future bricked systems screwing people out of hundreds of dollars in the future due to a power outage.
