Nikon D500 no longer working after firmware update

My Mac was no longer reading my D500 when it was plugged in so I went ahead and did the latest firmware update (original to latest).

Even after two hours the screen showed no progress the message stayed the same "this will take a couple of minutes".

The camera became very hot so there was little choice so turned the camera off which it would not do. SO removed the battery and now the camera will not turn on there is nothing. I made sure my other two batteries were charged and tried them but nothing. Tried the two green marked buttons to try and do a factory reset and nothing.

Absolutely gutted I rely of my camera everyday.

Very grateful if someone knows what to do. Surprised that a Nikon firmware update can break a camera.

Pleas help.
