I too am having this issue.  I have allowed it to update 5 times and it still continues to keep looping on the update.

I too have this issue and bought this POS last month.  I suggest you buy the Patriot Memory Box, it’s like $60 i think or less now w/ all the rebates and it comes w/ a wi fi.  I searched a bit and there’s actually a 3rd party firmware that you can upload to your WDLive and it works wonders, solved everyhting.  That’s how I solved my issue.  Someone else took out their USB and put in an older firmward during the endless update.  You can update to a “new” firmware after that, but just don’t update to the newest.

Using the third party software is not necessary. Just use 1.03.29 Rollback software available from WD. The looping problem is mentioned many, many times in both B & V firmware threads.
