Update to 04.70.03 gone wrong!

Question

Bought a 65SM8200PLA only a  month ago! 

Last Friday, the TV asked if I would like to update and I said Yes. So far so good but after the update the TV started showing several problems. Turning ON the TV takes forever! The LG logo appears briefly and the screen turns black. After 90 seconds the magic remote can be operated. Two minutes after its possible to access the HOME page. Several seconds later we can select HDMI and finally watch TV. The whole process takes about 5 minutes.

The applications also take longer to start.

I've tried a factory reset but no improvement.  Installed SURE app to try and force the installation of the same version file in case something went wrong the first time but the TV does not find the file. The SOFTWARE UPDATE page only comes up for maybe a second and crashes sending the TV to HDMI.

I've browsed the internet trying to find a similar problem or a solution but found nothing so far. I believe downgrading the OS would solve the problem. Any ideas on how to solve this nuisance?

Thanks in advance.

      UPDATING YOUR FIRMWARE
       
      The firmware that powers your LG Ultra HD 4K Smart TV with webOS should be updated from time to time to enhance your experience and improve its operation. Thankfully, this can be done easily and quickly, right at home.
      Watch this quick video to learn more. Or follow the easy steps below to get started.
       
       
      HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO UPDATE MY FIRMWARE?
      Firmware updates don't happen frequently, so you should be fine checking for updates every other month.
      HOW DO I CHECK FOR, AND DOWNLOAD, AVAILABLE FIRMWARE UPDATES?
      Before you do anything, make sure you have an Ethernet cord connected directly from your router to your television. Wireless Internet connections are not reliable enough for firmware updates.
      Use this diagram if you need help getting set up:

      ONCE YOUR TV HAS A WIRED CONNECTION, DO THE FOLLOWING:
      Press the MENU Click SYSTEM SETTINGS Then ABOUT Then SYSTEM UPDATES You'll be advised that your system is currently up to date or requested to select CHECK NOW for the latest update. If a new version is available, it downloads automatically. FIRMWARE UPDATES WILL ALSO UPDATE LG ULTRA HD 4K SMART TV AND LG APPS AT THE SAME TIME.
