Description (partial)

Server stuck in updating with no obvious cause.

From the CLI:

scope server x/y
show firmware

Local disk will report 

"Activate Status: Activating"

This was seen on an auto-installer upgrade to 2.2(3b) with Seagate drives running version 004, being upgraded to version 005.
This occurs only  if server is unassociated and firmware upgrade is done on the server (through  auto-install).
