Error 80029C55 means the following according to Sony and wikis:

80029C55 PS3 Error Code

0x80029c55 - Error occurred while accessing storage media.

The PS3 system is unable to read the system software update file on a game disc or an external media device, such as a USB drive or a Memory Stick Duo.
  • If updating using a game disc, make sure the disc is clean and free of scratches. If the disc has deep or excessive scratches, it may need to be replaced.
  • If updating using external media, download the system software update file again or try another external media device.
That said, did you name it correctly and place it in the correct path (/PS3/UPDATE/PS3UPDAT.PUP) on your USB stick?
yes it was named correct and in the correct path and i tried this multiple times with no luck just took it to the shop and will hope for the best
