What was you old version and what is the version you tried to install?

This is not a step by step manual, research every described step.

But either way I would recommend you to use a Linux live DVD (or usb stick), boot from it and then you see two or three partitions (drives) from your sdcard. First backup the whole sdcard, so you can go back every time you want. Figure out what is the name of the sdcard partitions and use dd if=/dev[your kobo partition] of=/media/[secondusbstick]/[backupname1].img - do that for all partitions, so you have 2 or 3 backup files. You can also try to make an additional backup with win32diskimager under windows.

After the backup under Linux take the last partition, you should see a .kobo directory and copy the KoboRoot.tgz from a official firmware into it. Try if the update finishes.
