The error shows an exclamation in a white triangle and reads: An error has occurred while updating the device software.

Go to the file location of Steam (default location is C:/program files[86]/Steam). Head to the Compatibility tab in properties and make sure "run this program as an administrator" is ticked. In short, he just solved this issue by going into Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common and simply deleting a file titled Fallout that was 0KB in size.

When he re-launches the game, Fallout 4 loads up perfectly.

Not sure if I'm the only one having this problem of automatically being opted out of beta after updating.
