I would describe the icon, device, and update in a Google search bar.

What device are you using? Do you know what the update wss? What does the icon look like?

It's not good for the device but you can power it down like a pc by continuously holding the power button. Be as sure as possible that it's not in the middle of some pay of the update before doing this. When powering up it may take an unusually long time to fully boot, because like with a pc you have forced it to shutdown and bypass all of its protocols. It will likely want to check for errors upon power up.
