It doesn't need to be plugged in, although it's often recommended.

Although it's probably not responsible for the error, 11.13 is the latest version.
wait, so the latest 3ds system firmware is 11.13? if so, why does it tell me i need to update my system to go on the eshop?

You've probably did something to your system files, so the system is detecting some files are out of date. It's also probably the cause of the error.

I recommend performing a CTRTransfer.

I think the ticket database is in the ctrNAND. did you back it up?

well, I'm not sure if a ctrNAND transfer overrides the ticket.db. I backed mine up just in case of ever having a problem. there's an app (forgot the name of it) that will rebuild it by scanning installed games. do the games appear red in fbi?

@TurdPooCharger is one of the most well-versed 3ds people here, so he'll probably have an idea as to what's wrong. I'm mentioning him, so he knows about this post.

the weird thing is that the games still show up in the fbi titles thing

they should. they'll appear red if the ticket is missing. afaik, they're bootable through fbi even without a ticket. the ticket is just what makes the game appear from what I remember.
