Make sure the microSD is not inserted on the Galileo and there is no current sketch running.
Thanks for your speedy reply JesusE!
That is good information, however I just figured it out. (I did not have any memory card inserted) I switched both the USB cable I was using and the USB port it was plugged into (Which happened to be a USB 3.0, it was dark behind my computer and didn't notice this. Normally I avoid 3.0 for all things Arduino..) So it could have been the USB cord or the 3.0, my guess is the 3.0. Either way it is now Updating currently.
Great! the USB 3.0 is also a great pointer.
