    So after watching a few videos about not updating to 5.5.2, I ran to my Wii U and did the DNS thing to stop the updates, and I even loaded up mocha from the homebrew launcher to make sure I was on the right firmware. And I was! So I shut down my Wii U, (basically unplugged it), and went to bed. When I turned it on in the morning, there was no red X on the download manager, and when I went in the download manager, there was no software update in the queue. But it still said it was downloading something. I am really confused and someone please help me.

    I wouldn't worry about it as long as you're on 5.5.1. I just did a very similar thing, the red cross was there, I restarted the Wii, and now it's gone.

    The X comes and goes , the only thing that you must be worried about is to make sure that you have those DNS in your Wii u settings , if you got that you're safe (although I would recommend to also block Nintendo URLs in your modem for extra protection)

    The Wii U wants to update gamesoftware/system software.
    Since you got Nintendo blocked via DNS, it displays that red X.

    Anyway, you're safe to update to 5.5.2 if you got haxchi and Mocha.
    Just disable the DNS temporarily and update it.

    It's not safe to update if the op is using mocha as it needs the browser exploit to load. If you mean loading mocha through haxchi this is pointless as you are loading a cfw to load another cfw.

    That's basically what I said.
    If OP has haxchi, OP is safe to update.

    Using CFW to load CFW.. I've seen worse things...
