Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.
As I see, your motherboard have a "1 x USB BIOS Flashback button(s)", look for that button and try to rollback to the previous BIOS.
Let me know the results.
Hi it turned out fine... I have no idea what caused it but after one or two restarts it was fine; I rolled back the BIOS anyway.
Now try to update the BIOS again but this time do it manually, put the latest BIOS version in a USB FAT32 format and boot, enter to BIOS and select "update BIOS manually"...follow the steps and enjoy.
