So if the update says that it failed, continue to run the Licence.exe and enter the Activation Key?

And it will work?

Will it work if I start out with a bricked screen, like the attached?

Good day. Your printer must be either in normal mode or recovery mode, your screenshot shows update summary and in this particular state it will not accept another firmware no matter what. Shutdown the printer, then start it normally via power button and try again.
