Thank you...that is sadly rather unfortunate, and potentially quite risky. The on-device update method takes an on-device backup from which it restores after the update succeeds. But, if the update fails in any catastrophic way, that backup file is lost forever -- along with all of your data. Hence, I never recommend using the OTA update and instead recommend that everyone follow good backup procedures (for which you can find instructions via the Backup link in my auto-sig below) as well as use the Desktop Software method for performing updates to their device.
Nevertheless, you may be lucky and this may or may not be a catastrophic OTA update failure...
There are two methods of recovery for you to try:
Good luck and let us know!
